I absolutely love MN Connections Academy! When I first changed to a virtual school, I was unsure if I would enjoy it at all. 3 years later and I've decided to complete all of my high school online. The teachers are very friendly and helpful in making sure new students understand the program. The flexibility has allowed me volunteer more and to help out within my community, something that is very important to me.

I attended this school for 13 years, or all of my K-12 education. Its requirements and expectations are rigorous, but much of the school is online (and you never actually have to leave your house) and is a charter school, so it's to be expected that expectations are higher for its students. Additionally, despite being completely online, teacher-student interaction and interaction between the students are quite common. In fact, teachers will reach out to students if they need help and vice versa.
I graduated from this school with the many different academic skills needed to achieve success at university.
I love MNCA! Their flexibility allows me to travel, the teachers are helpful and responsive, and the assignments are fun and interactive. My teachers have never hesitated to help me pass a hard class and give me the resources I need. I just wish they had more clubs and opportunities to get involved with the school.
