High School Student

Genesis is a junior at Ohio Connections Academy. She came to the online school this year; however, she isn’t new to virtual education. She previously attended another online School, and her brother and sister are also attending Ohio Connections Academy. Genesis shares more below.

Why I Chose Ohio Connections Academy

I have attended both traditional and online schools over the years and, while the traditional classroom may give more opportunities to interact with other students and teachers.

My Online School Experience

I think Ohio Connections Academy benefits me the most in the way that the teachers are always there to help students. I think learning would be confusing and challenging if we didn’t have teachers here to help us and guide us through lessons.

LiveLesson® sessions give me the opportunity to seek help when I’m struggling with a lesson or quiz.

In recognition of Genesis’s hard work and positive attitude toward school, her social studies teacher, Ms. Leader, nominated her to be one of Ohio Connections Academy’s Star Students of the month for December.

Genesis is a wonderful student,” Ms. Leader said. “I asked her to animate a podcast clip that I wanted to use as a visual in class. Genesis spent more than forty hours editing and creating a 25-minute video that is extremely professional looking. I am beyond excited to use this as a teaching tool. Genesis is a truly remarkable young lady.
