“I was interested in INCC because I wanted to take online courses in American Sign Language (ASL). My favorite subjects are ASL and health and wellness. Health and wellness teaches me about real-world problems, like nutrition and disease prevention, and how to help people lead better lives,” said Hope. “I have a close connection with my teachers, and they always ensure that my grades are up to par. Connections Academy is different from my previous school because everyone is so accepting and there is less stress and worry around schoolwork and projects.
I’m passionate about ASL, ukulele, and art. I manage my schedule around my interests by putting schoolwork first and using any extra time I have left in the evening and nighttime to practice.
