Caitlin Gilland is a high schooler at Ohio Connections Academy (OCA). She has attended the public online charter since the first grade. Currently, Caitlin is taking mostly honors courses and earning very good grades. She also has access to courses that aren’t usually available in traditional schools, such as American Sign Language.

Even though she attends an online charter school, Caitlin is able to participate in extracurricular sports in her home school district. She is a member of her school system’s golf, basketball, and track-and-field teams. 

“I benefit from Ohio Connections Academy by having flexibility to do my schoolwork while also having a set learning program with high standards,” Caitlin said. “I can go and do sports and keep up with my classes. I do this by working hard in both parts of my day.”
