My experience being a student at Nevada Connection Academy for two years was nothing short of amazing. The teachers are helpful, attentive, and genuinely care for their students. The administration is organized and thoughtful of every student at the school. The academics are college-level accredited and have prepared me for the next four years at University of Nevada, Reno. I am so grateful I chose to do online school with NCA because if I had chosen another program, I would not have had the same experience. I highly recommend Nevada Connections Academy to anyone interested in doing online school, for grades K-12. They are an amazing school that deserves amazing students!

I had a very warm and positive experience with Nevada Connections Academy. I attended their school due to an illness that kept me from attending high school through the traditional path, and their friendly and encouraging demeanor allowed me to succeed at my own pace, even graduating early! Their counselor and teachers were always willing to go an extra step for their students, and encouraged where it was needed.
Nevada Connections Academy allowed me to be myself while focusing all my energy on my educational success. The school's unique initiative of flexible and student-catered learning gave me the ability to fully exercise my academic strengths. Personalized schedules and learning material helped me see my subjects in a different light than I did in a traditional brick-and-mortar school. In addition, Nevada Connections Academy included a lot of wonderful events that let students like me still have a blossomed social life.
