Student Satisfaction

Over 96% of our parents say their children are satisfied with our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

Connections Academy is wonderful. I love the convenience of our school schedule. The staff has made learning exciting and fun. With my children more relaxed and less stressed, they can concentrate on their studies. Connections Academy has definitely helped our children’s academics and family dynamics.


My kids love Connections Academy! They have gone from a learning environment that included pretty much just me, them, and textbooks, to a virtual environment that includes teachers, LiveLesson® sessions, science projects, field trips, and so much more! I only wish I had found Connections Academy years ago!


"Now that we have a semester under our belt with Connections Academy, we could not be more pleased with everything, as well as with the progress our children are making."


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

Nearly 97% of our parents praised the helpfulness of their child’s teacher. Our parents appreciate the dedication and professionalism of our teaching staff and report a high level of satisfaction with their work.

We enjoy and appreciate the constant input from our talented teachers, especially from my son’s second-grade teacher, Mrs. Brandi Atilano, who built a wonderful teacher-student relationship with my son—one based on fairness and trust.


"I have found that the Connections Academy staff is amazing. My children receive more one-on-one help at Connections Academy than they did in a traditional brick-and-mortar school. The teachers really reach out to the students through WebMail, phone calls, and LiveLesson sessions."


What I like best about Connections Academy is that it is very evident that all of the staff and teachers have the same goal of seeing our three sons succeed even beyond their own expectations.


I love all three of my kids’ teachers, as well as their principal. Whoever did the hiring for Connections Academy is really a great judge of character!


The Curriculum is High Quality

Over 95% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. OCA strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

As a Learning Coach, I am impressed by the rich curriculum provided by Connections Academy. The art lessons, science projects, and social studies and educational technology assignments are integrated to emphasize the core aspects of language arts and math. Given my doctoral degree in science, performing science projects together with my son is particularly enjoyable, allowing a special bonding opportunity that is not possible with traditional schooling.


At Connections Academy, the curriculum is wonderful and offers different ways to learn the information. I love the hands-on approach of virtual schooling. My children receive actual textbooks for their classes. "


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Nearly 95% of families agreed that our technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parents appreciated our proprietary Learning Management System for helping to keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

We enrolled in Connections Academy seeking a safe learning environment in which Gabriel could thrive academically. The online learning allows Gabriel to engage his full intellectual potential by using the numerous resources provided by Connexus® and he has made remarkable academic progress in a short span of time.


There are many reasons why we chose Connections Academy. The flexible schedule works well for our family, whether we are going out of town for a few days or just need to take a breather and relax for a bit. The assignments are always available. The LiveLesson sessions from the teachers are also always available for my sons to watch as many times as they need.


With Connections Academy, I am given all the tools I need to be a great Learning Coach. With all of this wonderful help, I know my boys are getting a fantastic education.
