I've gone to a public all my life so coming to a new environment of online school was difficult. I came in my sophomore year, and planning on finishing there because I love it so much! The teachers are very helpful, and for the most part, care about your education. I've had multiple teachers this year continue to keep in contact with me even after moving onto my junior year, to make sure I'm on track to get into the college of my choice. The school has a decent amount of electives to choose from, and more career-focused ones that will help you later on. Overall I would recomend online school to anyone.

Connections Academy is a great learning option for those who cannot/do not wish to attend traditional school. It is a wonderful learn at your own pace with support from the many teachers and staff who give you their full attention. I felt very important at at this school, and my grades and attendance were valued by teachers who were more than willing to work with me. Overall I would highly recommend this schooling option to others!
Indiana Connections Academy is a very great school. The teachers are excellent and the courses are challenging but not overwhelming. Since it is an online school, students have more flexibility for when and how long they do their school work. Teachers are engaging, understanding, and helpful. They are gracious and almost always willing to offer extra credit and remediation. Although you aren't interacting with your peers in person at Connections Academy, you still have daily opportunities to interact with classmates and teachers through the virtual live lessons. Since switching to Connections I have had to make more of a effort when it comes to socializing which can be a downside. But that's really the only negative about this type of schooling. Overall, I think Indiana Connections Academy is a great school and a great alternative to brick-and-mortar public schools. I feel that I have learned more in-depth in my four years at Connections then I have at any other school I've attended.
