Kyle Barr is a graduate of South Carolina Connections Academy (SCCA). Kyle liked that SCCA allowed him to tailor his schedule to fit his needs. He shares his story below.
"I loved Connections Academy because it allowed me to successfully schedule my work around tennis and my other activities. SCCA has given me a great education and has helped me manage my time—a skill that I will need in the upcoming chapters in my life. Tennis and school are my two biggest passions. I was able to do work between practices and on the road. Tennis takes up the majority of my time outside of school, and without it, I don’t know what I would do.
Prior to coming to SCCA, I attended a big bricks-and-mortar public school. At my previous school, I was not able to miss a lot of days. Connections Academy gives me more flexibility to arrange my days around tournaments. I can get ahead on my work before I go to a tournament, or complete my work while I am traveling.
My favorite subjects at SCCA were science and criminal law. I liked science because the teachers had the assignments set up and planned very well. The labs were awesome, and the LiveLesson® sessions were always productive. My teachers were always very accommodating on the phone or through WebMail. The teachers I met in person were awesome as well.

Now that I have graduated from SCCA, I will be attending Wofford College and will play tennis for the team. My plan is to major in business or pre-law. Right now, I want to be an attorney. Connections Academy has helped me work on managing my time wisely, which is a big key for me in the future—for college and my future job."
