During the past five years, Jane has watched her sons thrive and excel academically. With Wisconsin Connections Academy (WCA), Jane feels confident her children are gaining the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in the future.
My husband and I currently have three children enrolled in Wisconsin Connections Academy and are extremely pleased with this program. We have seen other virtual programs, and none can compare to this.
With backgrounds in elementary/special education, my husband and I tried traditional public school and home schooling for a number of years until we discovered Wisconsin Connections Academy. This public school is the perfect fit for our family. With this program, we can be confident that our children are receiving a high-quality education along with the ability to work at their own pace. Wisconsin Connections Academy has qualified, licensed teachers who work with our children throughout their educational journey. Through this school, our boys receive the additional help they need in areas where they experience difficulties and are able to move ahead where they excel.
The teachers communicate with me and my children via WebMail, telephone, field trips, mailings, WKCE testing, and LiveLesson® sessions (a virtual live classroom). The level of communication between our children and their teachers is the very element that allows them to receive the individualized education they need to achieve success in school. I cannot imagine schooling my children any other way. We have been with this program for the past five years, and, during that time, we have watched our children thrive and excel academically.
The best part is that my children have found that learning is fun. With the use of LiveLesson® sessions, virtual whiteboards, video clips, and wonderful science equipment, the children get a "hands-on" approach to learning that is both interactive and exciting. With this program, I finally feel confident that my children are gaining the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in the future. Thank you, Wisconsin Connections Academy, for offering the best in educational opportunities!
