I love being a student at Ohio Connections Academy. The teachers are great and they work above and beyond what is necessary in order to make sure students understand concepts. They even offer free one-on-one sessions and complete regular phone calls to touch base and make sure that information is understood. It is great to interact with peers, but in a structured and monitored environment that keeps students from being bullied and harassed. Courses are rigorous and can be challenging, but they really prepare students for the future. There are also courses taught on necessary life skills, as well as question sessions with people from various professions. This school has prepared me for college and a future of achievement and success. I would not change anything about this school and am glad to be a part of such an encouraging community!

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! :)
