Has anyone tried the virtual academy for their kids?

I am trying it this 2010- 2011 school year.

  • I would check the Homeschool groups under the topic curriculums. I was wondering the same thing- I see a lot of great possibilities but I dont really want to deal with a teacher everyday.

  • I tried it one year, 2 years ago, and it was awful. It's too restrictive and rigid. We made it through the school year but then decided to homeschool on our own and it's been much better. We can do what we want, based on my kids' learning styles. Every kid is different and they all learn at their own pace, and with the cyber school, it's just like public school, they are forced into the same learning style and pace as everyone else.
