Mathias Meyer is a graduate student of Wisconsin Connections Academy. Mathias liked Wisconsin Connections Academy because of the support he received from his teachers and the flexible schedule he had for being able to complete his schoolwork. He shares his story below:

"I attended Wisconsin Connections Academy since kindergarten. My mom gave me the option to go to Rhinelander High School, but I liked this school [Wisconsin Connections Academy] because the teachers really helped me out when I needed them to, and I could work on my lessons at the times that worked best for me.

I had the best teachers. When I didn’t understand something, I just emailed or called my teacher. I also could go to the LiveLesson® sessions to ask questions. [My teachers] were there for me whenever I needed help. I liked it when they called me because they got to know me and didn’t talk only about school.

What I liked most about Connections Academy were the teachers. I feel like they really cared about me understanding the lessons, and they were there to help me whenever I ask.

In my free time, I really liked playing video games like Kingdom Hearts and Zelda. I also liked to go biking and cross-country skiing. I planned my schoolwork around these interests by trying to do most of it earlier in the day so I could have the end of the day to do other activities. I stayed in touch with friends by having them over to my house or talking on the phone, going to the movies, bowling, or playing online games with them.

Wisconsin Connections Academy helped prepare me for my future by making sure I received a great education.”
