Graduate

Theo is a graduate of Minnesota Connections Academy from Rogers, Minnesota. His family found Minnesota Connections Academy when they were looking for an alternative to a brick-and-mortar setting. They were relieved to find that Minnesota Connections Academy offered a structured curriculum as well as the support of attentive teachers. Theo shares his story below.

"My mom took me to an Minnesota Connections Academy meeting right before the school year started and I was intrigued by what was offered. I liked the idea of having a very quiet home environment to work in, but still being able to interact with other kids and teachers.

What I liked most about Minnesota Connections Academy is that I was able to interact with the teachers much more than I did in my bricks-and-mortar school classroom. My Minnesota Connections Academy teachers seemed happy to work with me one-on-one when I needed it and were always encouraging me. The classes and the LiveLesson® sessions were very interesting and enjoyable.

Outside of school, I sing in choirs and play the piano and clarinet. I also spend a good deal of time traveling around the world with my parents.”

Theo hopes to become a lawyer when he is older.
