eAchieve Academy Alumni Success Story - Emily Langr '08

I am a graduate of iQ Academy* (Class of 2008) and my sister is currently a senior at eAchieve Academy. 

I attended all four years of high school online through the School District of Waukesha. Being able to attend online gave me so many opportunities to take classes that were not offered in my home district's public or private schools. I was able to take French and Latin, Honors and AP classes, Graphic Design classes and more. It was a fantastic experience for me. 
Attending high school online prepared me extremely well for college. I learned how to manage my time wisely (definitely by trial and error!) and because of the online nature of the school, the assignments were more often college caliber: essays, exams, discussions and projects rather than worksheets (which are more common in a face-to-face high school). 
My teachers in high school were phenomenal. They were always available when I needed help. They took a lot of time to work with me and push me to new levels of excellence, especially in writing. One of my favorite memories of high school was being involved in our online newspaper: Virtually News. Being in an online school also freed me to work at my own pace, which I loved. I enjoyed being able to get up early and get all my school work done before noon so I could take more time to spend with my family, having a job, and other extracurricular activities. 
Today, I am a college graduate and working in K-12 education as a Technology Integrationist. My experience of attending an online high school has definitely shaped my life and career. Not a day goes by that I don't reflect on, or mention to someone that I attended an online high school as proof that technology can do amazing things for education and help educators to reach kids in ways that had previously been impossible. 
So thank you to the School District of Waukesha for enabling me to have such a wonderful high school experience which has shaped so much of who I am!
