The Virtual School Experience: Learn from the Students
You and your family will most likely have a lot of questions about virtual school when you begin to consider the idea. With some research and time, you’ll find that it’s not too different from a traditional school experience—but it offers many notable benefits! Virtual learning can be a great alternative for students who learn better in a more personalized academic environment. It’s also a beneficial option for students who need more flexible scheduling for different reasons, including sports, frequent travel, and special hobbies.
One good way to learn more about the virtual learning experience is to hear from the experts themselves—online school students! To help answer some frequently asked questions about online school, Connections Academy® online public schools have started a series of short videos on YouTube called “Ask CA!” These videos are hosted by Connections Academy students Justin Myrick from South Carolina Connections Academy, and Kendra Grosso from Oklahoma Connections Academy, and cover several online school topics such as daily schedules, social opportunities, and homework.
Justin and Kendra introduce the questions, and then other Connections Academy students answer them based on their experiences. You’ll be surprised by the responses!
Make sure to check out the “Ask CA” videos below . If you would like to watch more videos, visit Connections Academy’s YouTube channel and subscribe to stay up-to-date with the latest “Ask CA” videos.
