Student Satisfaction

Nearly 93% of parents agree that their children are satisfied with our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

My child absolutely loves Connections Academy.  He is able to work at his own pace and take time to re-think his answers before submitting them, which adds to better grades, which ultimately leads to a happier child. He has finally come out of his shell!


What I like best is how enthused my son is about learning. He has shown so much self-motivation and enthusiasm for the program.


We're really enjoying Connections Academy!  My daughter, Bethany, was behind on her reading skills. . Connections gave her second grade curriculum to catch up with. She completed all of her second grade curriculum in November and now is working toward completing third grade by the end of this year!  Thanks for giving her this opportunity to catch up with her peers!

The Curriculum is High Quality

The material is challenging even for my bright kids. Critical thinking is an excellent piece of curriculum. Being self paced is great.

I like how fluid it is. I can change the lesson configurations to keep up with my child’s interests and difficulties.

The curriculum is well organized and the lessons are easy to follow.

I love the fact that the books are all provided for you along with the curriculum. The Skills Tutor and Brain Pop® are wonderful. I'm enjoying the easy use of the computer for scheduling and attendance.

Everything is geared to my child. Her strengths and weaknesses are all taken into consideration as the curriculum is set for her. She is in charge of her learning.

Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Nearly 93% 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.

"The online schedule of daily classes with the teaching manual back-up is very helpful. I couldn't do this effectively without these tools. Additionally, the online grading and completion charts are a must.
