A few days ago, I received a direct mail advertisement from Arizona Connections Academy. My first thought was how much homeschooling must be growing for homeschool academies to be advertising via direct mail. My other thought was that some others might be interested in learning more about this.
They will have an in-person information meeting on Thursday, Aug 1, at 6:30 pm at Starbucks on 351 N. Montezuma St.
After a brief review of the website, it looks like it provides full public-style instruction in all core classes and many electives. There are also a couple dozen activity clubs your child can participate in. It’s basically set up as a distance-learning/online charter school. There is no cost for curriculum or activities (as far as I can tell). Your child will periodically have a review session (once every two weeks) to monitor progress and learning. Regular assessments will be taken and it will follow core curriculum guidelines. Your child can learn at his/her own pace and (possibly?) take subjects according to their own level.
Once again, another great opportunity for home-based education! Really, there are SO many options out there, it’s hard to keep track of all of them!
