This is my fourth year in Wyoming Virtual Academy’s curriculum for online learning, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience! I really enjoy having my mom as my learning coach, and the online classes challenge me everyday.
In addition to this, students are given some flexibility to make their own schedules. Sometimes my family will travel; if I work ahead beforehand (and tell my teachers), I don’t have to be behind when I get back. This allows me to do things like volunteer at the library every Thursday.
My favorite part of online learning is the spectacular balance it provides. My school has some awesome teachers that can help me through the curriculum, but I also have my parents at home as my own personal teachers! Online learning has helped me to excel as a student. I’m only 15 and am currently taking two honors classes and an AP class. On top of that, I can meet other students in my school while leading and participating in the gaming club.
Overall, I am happy to be a part of WYVA! Tomorrow you’ll hear from the three youngest of our family, my sisters Trinity, Charity, and Selah.
