ARCA was a bit more challenging than the brick-and-mortar public school my students used to attend, but at ARCA my children could take their time understanding subjects, whereas in the brick-and-mortar setting, it was more of ‘If you get it, good. If not, you’re stuck.’
With three students at ARCA, it could get a bit challenging, but what I loved is that I was able to learn alongside my children. For example, my son chose to take American Sign Language (ASL). I learned along with him, and we would test each other on what signs we’ve learned. We even started having small conversations using ASL.
My children have many outside interests. My girls like horseback riding and my son likes the outdoors and doing small projects around the house. My son wants to do construction. One of my girls would like to have a business degree, while the other one wants to be an emergency medical technician or do another type of work in ambulance service. They stayed connected with their friends through the many field trips offered and in-house WebMail.”
