This is our 2nd year with SC-Connections Academy. I have a 9th grader and 7th grader and I’m sad to see I am the only one here with a positive review.
Granted, nothing is perfect – but I’m very active on the CA message boards, and I can say there are many families using CA who are very happy with their experience.
As far as “busy work” mentioned in other reviews- it is not required. The 5/6 hours a day required is NOT 5/6 online hrs, but “school” hrs.
This includes ANY educational activity, including physical activity, field trips, reading, educational videos, etc etc etc. The schedule IS flexible.
I am able to re-run the scheduler 50x a day if I want to, in order to have it fit our lifestyle. We choose to “block” lessons (Math Monday, ELA Tuesday, etc.) in order to focus and master concepts better.
I have recommended it to 2 friends who are now enrolled and happy to have it. Flaws? Yes – but like I said before, there is nothing perfect in this world. We have to make things work for us, and Connections Academy does.
