My Online School Experience

My transition to online school was a little overwhelming in the beginning, but the staff at Ohio Connections Academy made me feel welcome.

I believe the teachers are interested in my progress and achievements, and I like that they are only an email or phone call away when I have questions.

Outside of the classroom, I’m involved in my church youth group and enjoy running the sound system for my church services.In recognition of his hard work and determination to succeed in school, several of Corey’s teachers nominated him to be one of Ohio Connections Academy’s Star Students of the month for February.

Corey has shown a strong sense of responsibility and takes pride in his learning,” Corey’s Algebra Readiness teacher, Mr. Mayle, said. “He works diligently and reaches out to his teachers whenever he has questions. Corey is willing to put in the time and effort to do his own best work.
