The Online High School Experience
Last year, Joshua joined the National Honor Society and realized he enjoyed interacting with his peers. Later that year,
Joshua and his girlfriend were inspired to start Pixels and Paragraphs, a photography and writing club. "We got nearly
50 members to sign up that year, which was great! We formed a nice community of writers and photographers, all
reading and regarding each other’s work and commenting on it," said Joshua. "This year, we got over 150 members to sign up,
three times our previous amount!" Upon graduation, Joshua hopes to pass down Pixels and Paragraphs to another pair of
students excited to run the club.
Many of my best experiences at Indiana Connections Academy are due to my connections
with other students.
Advice for Prospective Students
When asked about the best piece of advice he would give to an incoming Indiana Connections Academy student, Joshua says,
"Make sure to manage your time wisely and not get behind. Though the flexibility Indiana Connections Academy provides is
wonderful, it can be easy to fall into a seemingly never-ending chasm of work. Also, I would tell other students to get
involved – to get to know other students, especially. Many of my best experiences at Indiana Connections Academy are due
to my connections with other students."
