    Commonwealth Charter Academy is an excellent school for student who are self- motivated and need flexible schedules. The teachers are there to help you 24/7, and do as much as they can to help you succeed in your academic career. Personally, I started in 2015 and decided to finish and graduate with Commonwealth Charter Academy. They give you MANY opportunities to further and expand what could help you in higher education and real life situations. As most people complain that schools do not teach you stuff like doing your taxes, finding a good budget for yourself, or simple financial applications, this school has it! The course financial applications is now a graduate requirement, and you have more freedom in picking what courses are right for you, with guidance from school staff. I will always recommend this school to anyone look to switch from public schooling to cyber schooling.

    An excellent school of supportive teachers and kind students. A lot of students and parents seem to be leaning more towards cyber school in recent years and if that's the route you want to take, this is the school to do it! It has all the social aspects of public school, clubs, field trips, etc. Yet teachers and parents can monitor everything students do, making bullying basically impossible. The school also has college and career planning courses from 8th to 12th grade which help greatly with college preparation. I'm very grateful to have had my high school experience surrounded by generous fellow students and supportive and hardworking teachers.
    It was an excellent experience being a parent of 2 children who were students of CCA. We would highly recommend this school. Great academics, flexibility with schedule, great teachers who really cared! I participated yearly in giving free chats with interested parents at a local coffee shop because I thought so highly of this school.
