YES Academy allowed me to challenge myself in areas where I feel I excel and also allowed me to work at a pace that was comfortable to me. YES Academy allowed me flexibility in my schedule and the opportunity to devote time to develop in sports while still getting a quality education.
I really like Mr. Hunter. He’s fast to help and great as a mentor. Math is easier on the computer.
If it weren’t for YES Academy I would have had to drop out of high school due to health issues. YES Academy helped me finish my classes at a fast pace so I can catch up and get back on pace and graduate this year, class of 2012.
As a homeschool student, YES Academy has provided me with opportunities that I wouldn’t have found anywhere else, such as being able to challenge myself through online AP courses, and being able interact with great teachers across the country.
YES Academy set me up with a mentor teacher. Mr. Hunter would call me every week to see how I was doing. I had to email a contact form every week to let them know how many times I was logging in and that I was communicating with my teachers. There is a discussion board for every class. You send messages and talk to other kids all over the country about things you are learning about. I’m glad I can do my schoolwork at home through YES Academy. I don’t have to ride the bus all morning anymore and I’m working on getting ahead in school.
Math is easier to understand on the computer. I can fit school around my family’s schedule.
School was easier for me on the computer. There’s help available if you needed it. I definitely know a whole lot more than I did last year.
