Natalie says, “The best part of Indiana Connections Academy has been touring Indiana and learning about Indiana history as our family travels all over the state on field trips. The virtual school schedule has allowed more time to travel as a family. We have had time during the school year to take the train to the Grand Canyon and, on another occasion, to San Antonio, Texas, to see the Alamo after reading about it in my history textbook!”
Natalie’s mom says, “We wanted to try virtual school for a year just to see what it was all about, but we never went back to the brick-and-mortar school because this model of school was so fun. As the Learning Coach, I can be sure that my children are completely proficient in each standard before they move onto the next. When the students study from home, they can really focus on the content they are learning without outside distractions. Plus, at the local school Natalie had so much homework every night that there was very little time left to practice the piano. Now, since she finishes her schoolwork during the school day, Natalie has time to practice piano in the evenings.
