SC Connections Academy Review
by Cindy Hunton
Why did this mom switch from traditional homeschool materials to Connections Academy? Read her informative Connections Academy review to find out...
I homeschooled traditionally for 12 years using a variety of the more popular/traditional homeschool materials. Each year became more and more complicated and doubts arose that my high school and middle school students were truly receiving the highest quality instruction possible. I struggled with choosing the best materials, planning the best lessons, teaching the material and then grading it. It was difficult to find a balance between teacher (assigning, teaching, grading) and parent (helping a child do his best). How could I fairly assess a student's work if I helped him with the assignment?
I was constantly swamped with planning, preparing and grading. I researched carefully and prayerfully and found Connections Academy. I can homeschool and get a high quality education with much less frustration. The lessons are challenging; the choices are abundant; the school is accredited; the staff is caring; the teachers are well-trained and helpful; the grading is completed by the teachers and available to the parents at any moment. I love helping my children learn and seeing them receive the grades they earn.
My kids enjoy the live lessons and interactions in the clubs and activities they choose. They also now see how
their learning compares to other students their age and grade level. They are much more independent and responsible in completing their assignments. I readily admit that the professional teachers are much more capable of providing quality instruction in the upper level math and science. The school staff did an excellent job of helping my son through the college application process. My daughters are enjoying earning membership in National Honor Society and winning national photography contests. They participate in clubs that interest them and are much more motivated to achieve higher grades. We enjoy the ability to homeschool and get a super education!Hi Cindy! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with SC Connections Academy as well as sharing your struggles with traditional homeschooling materials. I'm sure many parents can relate to the finding the balance between the parent and teacher roles that come with home education. One of my children used to say, "Are you my teacher now, or my mom?" As I read your review, I could feel your relief and peace in finding the perfect fit for your family. Wishing you continued success! Blessings, Heather :)
