Brandon Negron is a graduate student of Tennessee Connections Academy (TNCA). Brandon enjoyed being able to work at his
own pace at our school. He shares his story below:
“To be honest, I didn’t want to join Tennessee Connections Academy at first because I didn’t want to leave my old
school. But when I saw how flexible the schedule was and how much the school had to offer, I wanted to stay. It provided
me the opportunity to learn from my classes better than ever before.
“I’m most passionate about my faith, and the flexibility allowed me to work my schedule around church, and it wouldn't
interfere with services. Another thing that I’m passionate about is my family. Tennessee Connections Academy helped me
to have more time to spend with them while doing school, whereas in brick-and-mortar school, I would be worn out by it
for most of the afternoon. Finally, I’m passionate about music, and the schedule helped me to have time to practice at
the times I chose.
“My relationship with all my teachers was surprisingly good. You would think that in an online school, it would be hard
to have relationships with teachers from far away. However, you can get in contact with them very easily. I just WebMail
messaged with my teachers whenever I had a question, and I usually received feedback the next day. If I wanted, I could
even talk on video. This is not to mention that the teachers were awesome and really helpful.
What I liked best about Tennessee Connections Academy is that it gave me the flexibility to do my classes according to
my own schedule.
"My favorite subjects were music and Spanish because those are two subjects that I like even out of school. I feel like I
would use the knowledge I learned in these classes a lot in my future.”
Brandon plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in biblical students as well as a degree in music. In the future, he plans
to become a worship leader in ministry.
