My classes at Connections Academy have prepared me to do well on the SAT and to show universities that I want to challenge myself with honors and Advanced Placement®* classes. In the future, I would like to be a writer. Classes like AP Language and Composition have helped me be a better writer.

I wanted to stay at home more, do STEM activities, and hands-on projects. My schoolwork at Reach Cyber lets me do that, and that’s one of the things I like the most. I love the idea of flexibility and being able to choose the order in which I do my lessons.
