Through my three years while at Colorado Preparatory Academy, I have encountered a plethora of teachers and courses that have enabled me to gain a more specialized education. While the courses are challenging and require diligent effort, they are both flexible and rewarding. Additionally, teachers strive to connect with students on a personal level. While the response times of teachers and the functionality of the online school is not always as efficient as promised, the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. Overall, my experience at CPA has been one that I will remember for years to come.

I joined Colorado Preparatory Academy due to social anxiety and physical health complications. I was welcomed into the school with open arms, where I was able to overcome my social anxiety in order to help others in my classes. Despite being in the comfort of my own home, I still learned just as much, if not more, as I did in a brick and mortar school. The content is fast-paced and the teachers are almost always available to help assist their students. The software used for our Class Connects, BlackBoard, however, had many complications that prevented efficient work. One of my teachers struggled with it so much that more often than not our Class Connect didn't happen due to her being unable to join the session. I hope that Colorado Preparatory Academy has looked into these issues and are either working with BlackBoard to resolve them or potentially look into new software to further improve the educational purposes.
After moving to Colorado last year, this school provided me with academic challenges that I have never faced before. The work was difficult, but I found that I retained so much more throughout the semesters. The communication could use some work, but the teachers are passionate about what they teach. I am excited to take my final year of high school with CPA.
