Michigan Connections Academy Reviews

Michigan Connections Academy was the first "real" school I attended and gave me many great memories. Before attending MICA in 8th grade, I was homeschooled by my mom and dad. Being homeschooled was great (what kid wouldn't love staying in their pj's all day?), but I was missing out on important social milestones that homeschooling couldn't give me. MICA was able to give me those important social skills and I'm eternally grateful. I was able to talk to my teachers and my friends on a daily basis and build those important connections. I also went on many field trips where I was able to meet my friends and teachers in person as well as use that opportunity to branch out and make new friends. The friendships and connections that I made at MICA are long lasting and continue to this day. I will always be so grateful for the experiences that MICA gave me, and I am so proud to have graduated from such an amazing school.

I was not sure about sending my child to an online school, but she wanted to go, so we gave it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The teachers are amazing. They are always available to help my children and myself included with any issues. The teachers really care about the kids succeeding and go out of their way to help and be supportive. They take the time to get to know the students and their interests. The curriculum is much harder than I expected, but I like that because it really challenges the students. I enjoy that the school has a family feel to it. You know that the teachers and parents are all working together for the benefit of the students. It is hard work to have a child educated at home, but Connections makes it easy because they are there for you and they give you the tools to help your child succeed.
Michigan Connections Academy is a very interesting, but effective school. My whole high school journey has been done through Michigan Connections Academy, and I have found it to be a very well-rounded school. I like the scheduling. Students can work at their own pace, and that is a big key to success. The courses are set up well, and instructions are normally pretty clear. If there was one thing I would change is that some of the teachers aren't the greatest. On the other hand though, there are some extremely good teachers who know what they are doing and are focused on the success of their students.
