I was getting bullied at my old school to the point where I was losing focus in my classes. I enrolled in an online school to reclaim the freedom the bullies were trying to take away from me. Little did I know that the new environment would bring me so many opportunities.
On my first day at Idaho Virtual Academy (IDVA)I was the shyest kid in my class. This year, I graduated confidently as the class valedictorian. I do not regret a moment spent taking my online classes. The new environment allowed me to learn at my own pace, and find my passion for engineering.
I even started earning college credits while still in high school. I’m graduating with a 4.26 GPA and two years of college credits completed. This will help me save time and money when I attend the University of Idaho to continue my education in biological engineering.
With the experiences I’ve had, I know I’m prepared to take on the academic challenges that are ahead of me. Good luck to other seniors that graduated from IDVA!
