There are several reasons why Susan is happy that her students attend Colorado Connections Academy: teacher support; no distractions, which they had in their traditional school’s classroom; no homework, meaning that they have more time to spend with their friends; and safety, which is the main reason.
My two students have been enrolled with Colorado Connections Academy (ColoCA) since 2015. At first I was worried about how they would adapt to being at home instead of going to a brick-and-mortar school. There were the typical arguments of “What about my friends? When will I see them? When will I be able to talk to the teacher if I need help?” After only one month, both kids were thrilled to be enrolled. They soon realized they weren’t distracted by kids in the classroom and were able to quickly work through their lessons. After completing their work for the day, they didn’t have to worry about homework in the afternoon, which meant more time to hang out with friends.
We are still over the moon with how easy it is to contact the teachers. Every teacher we have communicated with has been very informative and patient with us all. All the resources the teachers provide caters to each student’s needs. The LiveLesson sessions are a great way for students to connect with other classmates and see the teacher at work.
There are times when technical difficulties arise. However, tech support is just a call away. Usually when you call a tech support number, you get someone who reads off a screen to help you, and then gives up. But Connections Academy tech support will stay on the phone until your problem is resolved. Each time we have had to call, they were courteous, helpful, and informative.
With all the reasons to enroll in ColoCA, my favorite is safety. I no longer worry if my child is safe at school. As bullying becomes more of a problem in traditional schools, my children, doing their ColoCA schoolwork at home, are free to become themselves without being scrutinized for any reason. I no longer have to worry if they are being treated as equals due to their religion. As students enrolled in ColoCA, my children are able to be proud of who they are, and are sure to become the adults they are destined to be.
