Students Enjoy Our Programs

When observing our Michigan virtual school reviews, we found that nearly 95% of surveyed parents say their children are satisfied with our programs and are pleased with their child’s academic growth. The testimonials below highlight some examples of this positive experience:

We chose MICA because of its great curriculum, its high standards, its latest technology, and last but not least, the dedicated and qualified staff. We are confident that our kids are in good hands, and in just one semester, our experience with MICA has been very inspiring. We found our kids more engaged, focused, and disciplined, and they have actually enjoyed their schoolwork. We can’t think of any other school that provides such an excellent education right in our home.

Our experience with MICA has exceeded all our hopes so far. I believe any family looking for a truly challenging curriculum and willing to ask their children to perform to high standards will be happy to have found MICA. It has been immensely rewarding.

Michigan Conections Academy takes the good qualities of a public bricks-and-mortar school, such as state-approved educational guidelines and the availability of free resources to parents and students; the good quaities of a private school, such as dedicated educators and a sound curriculum with a variety of resources; and the good qualities of homeschooling, such as flexibility and an education tailored to the individual student. These things are combined to make an excellent school.

Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

In our Michigan virtual school reviews, we also saw that over 97% of our parents praised their student’s teacher and were pleased with the help and support they received. This level of satisfaction shows the hard work, dedication, and professionalism of our teaching staff. Our parents naturally appreciate this feature of our program as they continue to partner with MICA.

Aidan’s MICA teachers are wonderful facilitators and partners in education. We are so very happy with the program. He is motivated and excited to learn, which is a true measure of a quality education!

Our family is extremely grateful for the help each of our daughter’s teachers gave her and us as we negotiated our way through the first several months of school at Michigan Connections Academy.

The teachers in this school are wonderful, so caring and compassionate. I feel that they care about the students and their success from the bottom of their hearts. I will never send my children back to a bricks-and-mortar school after our positive experiences here.

The Curriculum Is High Quality

Over 93% of surveyed parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. This is achieved by bringing together the best available educational resources and creating challenging and inspiring lessons for students. MICA strives to make our curriculum as meaningful as possible, and our Michigan Connections Academy reviews show that our diligence in creating worthwhile curriculum has paid off.

The curriculum at MICA is exceptional, as are all the lessons planned out for me. My children have been able to excel in all their subjects and also take some electives and subjects that are interesting to them.

The curriculum is well organized and the lessons are easy to follow.

I love the fact that the books are all provided for you along with the curriculum. The Skills Tutor and BrainPOP® educational tools are wonderful. I’m enjoying the easy use of the computer for scheduling and attendance.

Everything is geared to my child. Her strengths and weaknesses are all taken into consideration as the curriculum is set for her. She is in charge of her learning.

Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Nearly 95% of families agreed that our technology tools helped their children to succeed and improved their children’s learning experiences. Connexus, our proprietary educational management system, helps parents and students stay on top of scheduling, grades, and communication. In our Michigan Connections Academy reviews, many parents commented that Connexus is a great tool for their family and helps them manage their child’s education.

At MICA, we use the Connexus education management system lesson planner to schedule our school days and feel it is a tremendous help. The schedule is also flexible, so our kids have the freedom to work ahead or ask for help when needed. The teachers are also very supportive, and the LiveLesson® sessions are a wonderful help. I personally feel that this system has helped my kids to really enjoy learning and appreciate what is being taught.

What we like most about MICA is the regular interaction of the teachers through virtual classes, phone calls, and WebMail. This allows our kids to receive one-on-one attention throughout the course.

My favorite thing about MICA is having a schedule in place where I can see what my children’s assignments are for the day, week, or month.
