Destinations Career Academy of Colorado Reviews

There needed to be more of an outreach for the social aspect of online school. Being a state school, many of the events were too distant to be reasonable for me to attend and as such, I had no friends all throughout high school. There was no way for students to interact one on one, no contact information available, not even a student email. Teachers discouraged the sharing of personal information during class connects as well. This contributed to me having no friends. I also disliked the English curriculum, feeling like it was too repetitive to what I learned in middle school, the tests too hit or miss, and the course, overall, too boring.

Destinations is the best online educational institution to prepare you for your career before college itself, without the distractions and unimportant elements of in person public schools!
It is one of if not the best online school and best school in general. In an average brick-n-mortar school I felt like my path was locked in place and I had no hope for my future. Now with this school it gives me time to explore what I love, teach me different careers and what it is like to work in them, and finally make me feel like I am in control of my life. It really teaches you to mature fast and take a large amount of responsibility but that's what I love about this school.
