Heidi Bumanlag

ORCA parent Heidi and her family

Heidi is the Learning Coach and mother of three Oregon Connections Academy (ORCA) students, Chloe, Tirzah, and Josiah. She truly values “the flexibility; high-quality, engaging curriculum; and wonderful support from Connections Academy.” The combination of these things makes ORCA the best choice for Heidi’s family.

“I learned about Connections Academy from a friend and family member. I had been teaching my children on my own since they were babies. My husband and I had given a lot of consideration to educating our children at home and decided that this would be best for our family.

When my oldest daughter reached school age, I found I needed more support and structure. I requested information about Connections Academy and was delighted with what I saw! We enrolled right away. Connections Academy provides amazing support through dedicated teachers, tech support, and LiveLesson® sessions, coupled with a high-quality curriculum and flexibility that works wonderfully for our family. I really like that the lesson plans provide a number of ways to teach a concept, and we can use what works best for our children. We can go at our own speed, too, so if my children grasp something really well and are ready to move on, we go for it. Or, if they are struggling, we can slow down and spend extra time until they get it.

The teachers and staff are there to help your child be successful and instill a love for learning. They are always available whether by email or phone, and happy to assist and encourage my children. Best of all, you have the assurance that your child is getting the best education because you’re able to work with him or her and take advantage of all the wonderful resources available at ORCA. It is a team effort with the parent, child and teachers. I really love being involved and seeing my children grow academically—we truly have a lot of fun! Connections Academy is a perfect fit for our family.”
