Cameron S. was giving it his all and trying to make it through the long school days when he was enrolled in a traditional school, but health issues made it very difficult. These health issues would affect his school day and his teachers were not very understanding. Being a teen with health problems is hard enough, but to be in a learning environment where you are getting in trouble for tending to your needs or missing class time because of an illness adds a lot of stress and can make you feel like you are backed into a corner.
When you take a health issue and accompany that with anxiety, making it through the school day becomes a serious struggle. Cameron found answers to his academic struggles through My Virtual Academy. He stated, “My Virtual Academy gives me as much flexibility as I need. The transition to MVA was very easy and I wouldn’t hesitate to make the switch.”
We asked Cameron what his favorite thing is about My Virtual Academy and he said, “That you can go at your own pace. I can work ahead if I know I go on vacation or want to take a break for Christmas and other holidays. It’s great to be able to choose when I want to work, like if I go to my grandparents to help with yard work during the day, I can do my work at night.” He went on to say, “So, it’s not like there is a set time things have to be done. I can just go at the pace that I like to go at.”
When speaking with Cameron, we asked if he could give struggling students who are looking at switching to a virtual school some advice. He replied, “This is your best option. As long as you stay on track, you’re good. Virtual learning is flexible and easy and I think you’ll like it.”
Cameron continued to tell his story and noted, “I love this online school! You are able to make your own schedule and I am able to do my classes whenever, as long as I get my stuff done. I am able to do as I please and check in on Wednesdays – this is the best kind of schooling there is. I wouldn’t change the transfer if I had a chance because I’m in love with all the opportunities I get for being online schooled. I don’t have to worry about other kids in my school and whether I am accepted or not because I am able to do online school at home. I learn a lot better online than I did in regular school.”
We are very happy that Cameron decided to make the change and take control of his education. We hear stories like his every day. Sometimes students just simply need another approach to learning and to work in another environment. If this sounds like you or someone you know, reach out to us.
