I started attending CTA this January and I love it! The teachers really care about you and will do anything to help you succeed. Whether it's giving you advice, a shoulder to cry on or working with you in study hall on their free time with classwork or studying for a test. I was nervous starting mid year but that was absolutely not a problem, everyone was welcoming and I fit in instantly. I plan on graduating from CTA and can't see myself anywhere else. The outdoor sports program is outstanding! I have tried things I never would've probably without coming here. I did not have a great academic history and since attending I have been an honor roll student all of my attendance at CTA. The bloc system keeps everything fresh taking a new class every 4-5 weeks and provides a new start in sequence classes, and with taking only 3 classes at a time it makes it easier to stay on top of all of your work. With the bloc system you can also finish classes and achieve credits in a very timely manner, I finished an entire year of biology in three months. By far the best decision I have ever made.
