“I was interested in CA because my older brother had attended it, and my parents liked the curriculum. I wanted to have a more flexible schedule for travelling when we lived in Georgia, but now I need the flexibility to train for snowboarding.
The reason CA works for me is the flexibility. I really like that I can do school in the morning before training or afternoon after training, and I can pick when I use my vacation days. My favorite subject is Lit because I love writing and using my imagination. My relationship with my teachers is through webmail or phone calls. I can’t attend the LiveLesson sessions because I’m on the mountain, but the teachers post them so I can watch them later if I need to.
"The reason CA works for me is the flexibility."
I am passionate about snowboarding. I ride about six days a week from early morning until late afternoon. I’ve travelled to Mammoth Mountain in California and Cardrona, New Zealand to train and compete, which I could not have done without CA! I could do my lessons in New Zealand the same as if I was in Breckenridge!
My future plans include going to college, but continuing to train. I would like to major in Journalism, and hopefully, find a good job in the snowboard industry.”
