Student Satisfaction

Over 94% of our parents say their children are satisfied with our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

My son has come a long way towards a better self image since being enrolled in Connections Academy. I wish I would have done it sooner. He is doing his work, and I really enjoy having him home. He is also finding his strong points and his weak points. I am so happy that I found Connections Academy.

My now 17-year-old child has completed two years with Minnesota Connections Academy and also has completed 19 college credits because of dual enrollment. My other three school-age children completed their first year with Minnesota Connections Academy, and it was a great year of educational growth.

Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

Over 97% of our parents praised the helpfulness of their child’s teacher. Our parents appreciate the dedication and professionalism of our teaching staff and report a high level of satisfaction with their work.

An experienced teacher is just an email or a phone call away. Once we got into the flow of the program and Theresa got accustomed to the new way of schooling, we found we loved it. For me it was the best of both worlds. I could have my children learning at home in a safe atmosphere, I could be involved, and we have the expertise of a qualified teacher!

The Curriculum is High Quality

In fact, 94% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. MNCA strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

I believe in a challenging curriculum. My girls are advanced students, and I was thrilled to see them being challenged. We were especially excited about the writing and grammar. I have seen so many students go into college terrified of Freshman Composition, but if they are learning these skills all along, they will go into college with confidence.

Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Over 93% of families agreed that our technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parents appreciated our proprietary Learning Management System for helping to keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication.

A plethora of field trips, parent and student chat rooms, LiveLessons® sessions, and the teacher message boards are some of the ways that parents, teachers, and students stay connected daily. These tools provide a way for CA families to meet each other as well as improving on the daily learning experience for the students.
