Ohio Connections Academy (OCA) is a k-12 online homeschool. Granted, every school has 'that teacher,' and so doesn't OCA, but overall the teachers are excellent! They are encouraging and they have a lot of patience when helping students to understand concepts, whether one-on-one or within the class. The academics are excellent, and the material isn't super easy (great for challenging the mind!). Of course, since OCA is online and doesn't have a physical location, there isn't a sports team or food, but you sure get plenty of time to fluctuate your schedule to enjoy both. I would definitely recommend Ohio Connections Academy to anyone who is looking for a good homeschooling program!

I believe that Ohio Connections Academy is a wonderful school! The teachers here are absolutely amazing. There is a wide variety of classes you may choose to take, and the majority of peers are respectable and actually want to learn. The only downside is that there isn't a wide variety of clubs and organizations you can join. For example, there isn't an Anime Club or a gay-straight alliance club; there are only "typical" clubs here, and I have found them to be engaging but quite boring. The staff here are willing to help, the teachers are respectable and do a nice job of teaching the material, and students actually want to learn. I want to also point out that because the material is challenging, students can fall behind easily if they do not reach out to their teachers and ask for help. Ultimately, it all comes down to the student if s/he is willing to participate, put in their best effort, and regularly engage with his or her teachers. In the end, this is a great school. Go OCA! :)
Ohio Connections Academy was a quality school. The teachers were supportive of me as an individual student and did their best to help me succeed. Ohio Connections Academy was efficient. I wasn't wasting my time. It was structured enough to keep me motivated, but allowed plenty of flexibility for a busy schedule. Ohio Connections Academy offered a variety of "extra" courses including Sign Language, Digital Arts, and Digital Photography! I would highly recommend Ohio Connections Academy to anyone who is considering an online school.
