Most students walk to school or get a ride to campus from parents, friends or bus drivers. Katriel Cho comes downstairs, clicks on her computer, and by 7:30 a.m. is transported to a campus of the virtual variety. The 15-year-old Corona resident is a sophomore at California Connections Academy at Capistrano. The academy is an online, tuition-free, public school serving kindergarten through 12th-grade students in Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and Los Angeles counties.  When asked for one word to describe it, Cho said she picked “freedom.” While she doesn’t sit next to classmates, they have virtual rooms where she can see the other students’ names and they can chat.  “It’s really interactive that way,” she said.
