Student Satisfaction

The majority of our parents—nearly 96%—say that not only is their child satisfied with our program but also that they themselves are happy with the academic growth of their child.

Wow! What a difference Connections Academy has made for us. The kids don’t have to be up and out at 7:00 a.m. This alone has caused their grades to go up. They eat better and study better, plus the family is involved on a daily basis. We love Connections Academy!


Our son is in sixth grade this year ... his first year with Connections Academy. He was behind academically in the beginning. My husband and I are very glad we decided to give Connections Academy a try. Not only is our son doing well with Connections Academy, but also he is excelling.


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

ORCA parents are pleased with and appreciative of the professionalism and dedication shown by our teaching staff, with nearly 96% praising the helpfulness of their child’s teacher.

We chose Connections Academy because it is an accredited program and the support from certified teachers was really important. With the homeschool program we were using, we felt we were on our own. Now we have such a great support system with Connections Academy, and we love it!


Our teachers are wonderful and are always there to answer questions and provide support for the kids as well as the Learning Coach. As the Learning Coach, I only wish that I could have attended ORCA, but I am getting my chance by being the Learning Coach!


We have a great teacher and have enjoyed the great support system. Any question or problem has been addressed quickly and kindly.


The Curriculum Is High Quality

Over 95% of ORCA parents agree that the curriculum we offer students is high quality. We strive to bring together the best possible educational resources to create inspiring and challenging lessons for our students.

We really like Connections Academy because it is a well-rounded curriculum. The staff works very closely with us to ensure our son is getting the best education.


The kids are able to work at the pace that is right for them. The curriculum is rigorous yet fun, and the kids remember everything they are taught! They are excited about school and ask for more.


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Many parents have voiced an appreciation for Connexus®, our educational management system, which works to help them stay organized with scheduling, communication, and grade tracking. Nearly 93% of families say that our technology tools have helped improve the learning experiences of their child.

LiveLesson® sessions are really helpful for the children. They can see the lesson as the teacher talks and shows them in writing the problems or how to do an assignment.


The school website is very easy to navigate, and if there is ever a problem, tech support is right on top of it!
