Preparing to Join the Family Business
The son of an electrical contractor, Neil had already made plans to join the family business. Besides being one of the highest-paid skilled trades, electrical work also presented him with the opportunity to travel the world and work in many foreign countries.
In addition to preparing for his career, Neil had other responsibilities. Helping his grandmother with daily chores, part-time work, and volunteering in his community kept this outgoing teen more than busy. When considering online schools, Neil and his family really liked the idea of having more flexibility in his schedule. The family also liked the fact that they would have more involvement in Neil’s social environment during his critical, formative years.
An Online Education Like No Other
After his sixth-grade year, Neil’s family enrolled him in Connections Academy. From day one, they knew it was the right decision. The Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses were what Neil needed to prepare for his future in the family business.
The classroom setting was also exactly the environment he was looking for. The online learning portal, teachers, and structure of Connections Academy’s online courses made it easy for him to stay organized and on track.
Neil was happy that he could attend school in the mornings, afternoons, or even while he was on vacation. It allowed him the freedom to work part time, as well as volunteer in the community, which gave him a huge advantage heading out into the world after graduation.
