Connections Academy was initially a struggle because we never had so much flexibility—but we’ve definitely adapted, and Nora has learned to manage her time much better. She has also learned to advocate for herself more in reaching out to teachers to get help and advice, which is something we knew she really needed to work on as a life skill.
The best piece of advice I could give a new family is to read those teacher emails, attend LiveLesson® sessions with your child, and become familiar with teacher message boards, especially in the beginning. Connections Academy might seem overwhelming at first because it’s so different, but the teachers send you everything you need for success. Once you know where to find the resources, things get so much easier!
