Student Satisfaction

Over 93% of our parents say their children are satisfied with our program and are pleased with their child’s academic growth.

My grandson is a student with Connections Academy. Since attending he has become an enthusiastic reader. It is both exciting and rewarding to see a child who once struggled with learning, beam with knowledge. I thank you tremendously for allowing us to be a part of the Connections Academy family.


My daughter absolutely feels she is getting a better education then she did at her 'bricks and mortar' school. She has no distractions and she can feel comfortable asking questions if she is confused about something. She is getting all A's and B's for the first time and she says she has a new found confidence since she's been at Connections Academy.


Teachers Provide a High Level of Support

In fact, 95% of parents praised the helpfulness of their child’s teacher. They appreciate the dedication and professionalism of our teaching staff and report a high level of satisfaction with their work.

Connections Academy teachers teach with many different styles ... and work together as a team for my child’s success.


So many aspects of WYCA are exceptional. The teachers work with our family and to come up with the best educational program for our daughter. The resources available online are captivating, interesting, and even sometimes down-right amusing. For the parents, it is an easy program to follow because the curriculum is provided and the lessons are clear and easy to follow: moreover, help is just a phone call away.


I like the professionalism of the teachers at WYCA and that there is lots of personal contact between the teachers and the students.


The Curriculum is High Quality

Nearly 94% of our parents agree that our curriculum is high quality. Connections Academy strives to bring together the best educational resources in order to create challenging and inspiring lessons for students.

The material is challenging even for my bright kids. Critical thinking is an excellent piece of curriculum. Being self paced is great.


The curriculum is well organized and the lessons are easy to follow.


I love the fact that the books are all provided for you along with the curriculum. The Skills Tutor and BrainPop® are wonderful. I'm enjoying the easy use of the computer for scheduling and attendance.


Everything is geared to my child. Her strengths and weaknesses are all taken into consideration as the curriculum is set for her. She is in charge of her learning.


Technology Enhances the Learning Experience

Over 93% of families agreed that our technology tools helped to improve their children’s learning experiences. Many parents appreciated Connexus®, our proprietary learning management system, for helping to keep them organized with grade tracking, scheduling, and communication. And parents say our LiveLesson® technology is like having the teacher right in the room with you.

The online schedule of daily classes with the teaching manual back-up is very helpful. I couldn't do this effectively without these tools. Additionally, the online grading and completion charts are a must.


My husband, Jeff,  is deployed to the Middle East with the Air Force ... Considering the limited amount of time we have to communicate, it is very difficult to keep him aware of our son’s performance, grades, etc. During a brainstorm, Jeff logged onto Connexus and it worked. He can now review Thomas’ tests scores, his portfolios, and daily classes from the Middle East. I know this makes Jeff feel somewhat closer and more connected to us. Also, he and Thomas now discuss certain things relating to his education.
