Komal Jit Kaur, Tracy resident, enrolled her high school daughter Gurnoor Singh in California Connections Academy Northern California midyear after realizing an online school experience would enhance Gurnoor’s life with flexible scheduling and advanced learning opportunities. “Before joining California Connections Academy, Gurnoor didn’t have free time outside of school,” said Kaur. “Now, she’s receiving a high-quality online curriculum while still having the flexibility to explore her interests outside school and to become a well-rounded individual.”
