It's an amazing online school that has great teachers, great communication with me and my kids. The teachers reach out, unlike the teachers we've had in public schools. I know my kids are getting a better education. less stress, no bullying, and no peer pressure. I would definitely recommend this school to all my friends and family my kids love it and has so much fun.

I would recommend Forest Trail Academy. My son has graduated from the same school and he is doing great in college. The teachers and staff are very supportive and prompt to answer any questions I have. It was good for my son because he refused to do school work in the public school and he was just going to let his slide through. Their policy of all assignments have to be turned in made sure he couldn't be lazy. My son loved the challenge and the ability to move as fast as he could. He was able to graduate sooner than his best friend who is still in the public school.

The support of the teachers has been outstanding. They are willing to try new things and help my child grow and learn at her own pace. They also value and respect my input as a parent. The curriculum challenges my child without being so hard that they can`t figure it out.

My daughter signed up for classes in her freshman year. Forest Trail Academy is rated as one of the top online high school programs in the country so I took a chance. Education is outstanding. Weekly they send the schedule of online classes that complement the daily assignments. As parents, we have to take responsibility and make sure that our children are on top of their studies.For the high school students, Forest Trail Academy is the perfect way to prepare children for college. I feel and believe that the overall course selection is really great and really offers some a great variety of different fields of study to help me succeed in life. I would definitely recommend this program for the ease of online learning. It is very simple and easy to use and has a wide range of choices for me to take.

31. Forest Trail Academy is an amazing school. I'm an athlete and find less time in attending the traditional school. I was suffering in managing both the school and also the career because traditional schools have fixed timings. I had missed my school for many times because of the sports tournaments. Once I joined FTA everything has gone quite comfortable. It has provided me flexibility in time for learning, so that I can concentrate on studies when am free on that day. I would like to say is Forest Trail Academy has given me an opportunity to earn the diploma without missing my career, made me successful in both the studies and the career.

I'm thankful to Forest Trail Academy for providing me a high school diploma. I have gained American Diploma from FTA. Being a person belongs to military family we use to relocate from place to place and because of relocation there was a disturbance in my education. FTA has resolved my problem, after joining FTA I have got my education without any interruption.

My son being a professional surfer, had to dedicate most of his time to practice and tournaments. Forest Trail Academy allowed him to continue concentrating on the surfing and complete his education at his own pace. His grades from regular school were always low but since joining Forest Trail Academy, I have seen tremendous improvements in the grades. I'm really happy with the quality of education and the personalized attention provided by the teachers.

The online school has laid a path for my success and helped me in getting back on track for the lost credit in the previous academic years. The teachers at Forest Trail Academy has guided me at every step and made my years success in the school.

We are so happy we found Forest Trail Academy for our son. While the classes are online, the teachers and staff are still very much involved in interacting with the parents and students. The academics are challenging enough and the staff seem to actually care about the success of the students. The 12 month flexible schedule and NCAA approved courses are just what we were looking for since our son is active in both sports and music. He now has all the time he needs to travel and study his violin.
