School Reviews

We used Nevada Connections Academy to homeschool two of our kids for four years. Our situation changed to where we now use a brick-and-mortar public school, but we did love NCA. The teachers were very helpful, the kids were able to progress faster or slower than a typical classroom, as needed. We were able to really explore topics, and we learned so much about how our kids learn, and how better to teach them. The school provides everything you need, not just textbooks, but science equipment, art supplies, and of course, lots of teacher help if you need it. Great school, can't recommend it enough.
