International Connections Academy Reviews

I was a student at International Connection Academy for 5 years. I earned my high school diploma on June 9th, 2017. The curriculum was very rigorous, yet manageable, if you put in the right amount of effort/time. The teachers were friendly and knowledgeable. The live tutor rooms were extremely helpful throughout the school day! I will say, in order to feel a part of the school community you have to participate and utilize the resources. Overall it was the best place to earn your degree, while remaining at home.

Two of my three children have attended International Connections Academy. One child attended from 7-12 and graduated in 2018, and another is attending grades 10-12. We've had both the experience of starting the school at the beginning of the school and mid-year. It is very difficult to begin mid-year and recommend waiting until the start of the next school year, if circumstances allow.

The administration and teachers are very helpful and responsive, and the platform is very user-friendly. It requires self-discipline with the students to stay on-track as the volume of lessons can be overwhelming at times, but with support and motivation from parents it can be done.

There isn't one solution for students to succeed, however with school violence, drugs and at times school personnel at local schools detached from their students, this has been a very positive experience that has helped restore our kids' self-esteem.
I have been with Connections for over 12 years. My older two daughters graduated from National Connections Academy. They were well prepared for college.
National Connections became International Connections. Now my younger two have classmates from all over the world. My son is in the 11th and my daughter is in the 8th. They started with iNaCA in kindergarten. The iNaCA teachers and staff are family to us. It's a vigorous program but the teachers really go above and beyond to help their students learn. It gets easier for the parents the more independent they become. I enjoy the flexibility of the classes. My children can complete their work when their brains are most active. The live lessons help so much and allow the kids connect with their teachers. Peer tutors and live tutoring help as well. There are plenty of extra curricular activities to choose from, (ie. Chess, writing club, Middle School Scholars, etc. ) The school really goes above and beyond.
