"From kindergarten to seventh grade, I attended the local public school. Because our community is so small, it was K-12 and offered no electives or Advanced Placement classes. I simply didn't feel challenged in that environment. Because of Connections Academy's wide range of courses, I have learned and grown so much more than I would have otherwise.
One of the things that I am very passionate about is rodeo. Because of the flexibility of my schoolwork, I can go to as many competitions as I want—and still succeed in school! In fact, this program is really the perfect fit for me, as I practice for almost six hours every day. I can work through my classes at my own pace and take my school with me wherever I travel. All this freedom really paid off. I was the Idaho 2018 State Champion Barrel Racer!
