The curriculum at Texas Connections Academy allowed for guided, yet independent learning with teachers regularly making sure you actually understand the material; that worked quite well for me. When I had questions, the teachers would be able to explain in real-time, often with diagrams or examples through the LiveLesson ® sessions. Otherwise, I would call or send a WebMail, and they’d respond pretty quickly.
The flexibility worked well for me because I could spend the day out with my family or attend a field trip, then complete my work in the evening. Not many other kids get to do schoolwork in their pajamas or have vacations in the middle of the school year!
The curriculum at Texas Connections Academy taught me to challenge myself—it prepared me for the subjects and workload at a college level. My teachers and counselor were always very supportive of my goals. They encouraged me to pursue extracurricular activities and volunteer.
