Caroline is a high school student at Maine Connections Academy (MCA). MCA’s flexible scheduling allows Caroline to work more independently and pursue her many interests. She shares her story below.
“When my mom told me about Maine Connections Academy, I was overjoyed. I love the fact that MCA allows me to plan my own schedule and choose when to do my weekly work. I think that should be a benefit of all schools, not just this amazing online school.
MCA gives me more time to read, which is one of my greatest passions. In my old school, there was only one period a day that we were allowed to free-read, and that was frustrating to me. Luckily, at MCA, independent reading counts as schoolwork, and we can read whenever we’ve finished our classes for the day. I read the book, Surviving the Applewhites, and now support the idea of choosing what you want to learn, instead of being told what to learn. I love the opportunities that this online school provides! It allows me the freedom to be me!
Currently, my favorite subject is language arts, but I also enjoy art, social studies, and science! Outside of school I play several musical instruments including violin and piano, and I’m currently learning how to play the harp and the flute. I am also passionate about animal rights and vegetarianism.”
