I had a great relationship with my teachers! I would say that it was much better than relationships that I had with teachers at bricks-and-mortar schools, as there was always a lot of communication back and forth, which made it easy to build a strong rapport!
During my senior year, my family built a house. While [we were] planning, building, and eventually moving into it, online school made helping my family with all the construction projects much easier! In addition, I signed to a modeling agency! Being able to plan my lessons around my dual construction–photo shoot schedule was an absolute lifesaver for me! I’m an early riser, so I would get started first thing after breakfast. I loved being able to start my lessons before everyone else was up in the morning!
With Advanced Opportunities, I was able to take courses on the Idaho State University campus while still a high school student. I was able to take two film courses and two intermediate Japanese courses. My previous school would not allow me to do that, as it would interfere with my class schedule, so the transition to Connections Academy was beneficial to me in multiple ways.
Through Connections Academy, I was able to get the most out of my education while still pursuing my extracurricular activities!”
