To say Oskar is a busy student is an understatement. Juggling an active lifestyle, gaming clubs, and his music, Oskar needed a learning option that gave him the freedom and flexibility to learn in the way that works best for him. Explore what a typical Wednesday looks like for Oskar at Minnesota Connections Academy.

Art Imitates Life

Oskar loves music. He lives it. He breathes it. He’s working on writing an album, but in order to pursue his passion his way, he needed a flexible learning environment. That’s why he and his family chose Minnesota Connections Academy. With flexible scheduling, Oskar can learn in the way that works best for him while pursuing his art.

At Oskar’s brick-and-mortar school, he didn’t have the freedom or flexibility that Minnesota Connections Academy offers. It made it tough to attend music lessons and travel. Our program works well for Oskar because it allows him to do his classes whenever he wants. He can work on his own time and at his own pace, and his supportive and friendly teachers are always available if he ever has questions or needs help with his lessons.

The Life of a Rock Star

Now, Oskar’s days remain jam-packed full of LiveLesson® sessions, work-study time, bass practice, skateboarding, attending gaming club meetings, and much more. Oskar enjoys the flexibility of his schedule because it lets him attend his classes on his own time, allowing him to go at his own pace.

“My activities mean my schedule changes a lot…most of the work is on my own time when I can choose to do my schoolwork late at night or early in the morning.”

Oskar attends daily LiveLesson® sessions where he enjoys interacting with his teachers and other students. His favorite classes are science, art class, and language courses as well as the Wild Weather Club.

“What I like most about Minnesota Connections Academy is that it allows me to do my schoolwork when it is best for me, and I have great teachers!”
