Christy Obie-Barrett,
Executive Director

A Family For Every Child is a non-profit organization that serves families, children, and agencies nationwide. Thank you for all your support.

Non-Traditional Schools



Accredited Schools:

Connections Academy

Connections Academy is a free online schooling program for children in grades
K-12. Books, lesson plans, and computers are sent to the student at the beginning
of the school year at no cost. Students reach high potential with strong parent
involvement, flexible learning, and accountability.

Why should you care?

Perhaps you have a child, younger sibling, grandchild, niece or nephew, whose
current schooling arrangement is not working (medical reasons, behavior reasons,
doesn’t have access to advanced placement classes, lives in a very rural part of
Oregon, etc.).

The Academy supports students from grades K – 12.  Students are shipped all
of their books, materials, computer (yes, a computer!), and are provided with a
subsidized Internet connection.  All free.

Social events and regular field trips are arranged so that students can meet
their on-line classmates and teachers.
