Logan Acker is a high school student who attends South Carolina Connections Academy (SCCA). Her twin sister, Lydia, is also a SCCA student. At SCCA, Logan is able to pursue her athletic passion while receiving a high-quality education. Learn more about her story below.
SCCA has proved to be the best fit for the Acker family. Logan’s favorite subjects are science, math, and history because they satisfy her curiosity about past and future world developments. She is also a member of the National Honor Society and is an Honor Roll student. Though she is achieving academic excellence, Logan has the freedom to pursue her talents in ballet.
Logan sometimes attends more than20 hours of dance classes a week. In addition to ballet, she also takes musical theater and contemporary dance classes. As a member of the International Ballet’s senior company, Logan performs twice a year at the Peace Center for the Performing Arts and is involved with other programs within the community. Her dream is to dance professionally with a ballet company and regularly perform in front of an audience. Logan plans to obtain a college degree and pursue a career in science if her dance dream is not possible. South Carolina Connections Academy has prepared Logan for the future by teaching her to be self-sufficient in her studies, organized, disciplined, and proficient in time management.
What I like most about South Carolina Connections Academy is that it allows me not only to have a more flexible schedule for my intense ballet training, but also to receive such a high standard education.
