I was thinking of going to GOAL while I was going through some hardships. Before this school I struggled attending school and doing my best due to some things that happened at the time. All the teachers at GOAL we’re positive towards all the students and encouraging which really helped. They understood that everyone goes through different situations and give all of us an opportunity to succeed. I am now motivated to continue my education and have so many goals. I’m more independent than I have ever been thanks to their guidance. Thank you GOAL!

The opportunity to attend school online was something I really needed in my junior year. I had dropped out of public school was was behind in all my class work. The program at GOAL worked for me, because my schooling was more personalized, and face-to-face tutoring was available. GOAL also helped me qualify for a concurrent enrollment program with Pikes Peak Community College. Thanks to them, I graduated in four years.

However, I was frustrated by the system several times. There seems to be a general lack of communication within the faculty. I would sometimes hear completely different information to a basic question, depending on who I asked. I was also upset that they had me register for the ACT with my student email, and then they deleted that account the following semester.

GOAL works for some students, but I would not recommend it for everyone.
My experience with GOAL Academy has been very good. They supply each student with a school laptop that makes it very easy to do the work that they ask you to do. It is very flexible so if I am doing something outside of school I can fit the school work to my schedule and not the other way around. Overall this is a great school!
