My son was able to get a quality online education. I thought his curriculum was on par with others in his grade level who attended traditional school. The teachers were responsive and answered our questions/concerns. Other administrative staff were available as well.

This is a sub-par school. Very disappointed. The #1 most important stressed issue was NO PLAGARISM to the point that it was so time consuming to try to do anything that learning was subjugated. DO YOUR RESEARCH ask around and choose a program that is intuitive and easy to navigate. This one is NOT.

Had a hard time connecting with teachers about questions. Not enough details given on assignments! Once I removed my son it has been hard to get his final grades and stuff to enroll in other schools! Just not what I expected for home schooling at ALL!!!!!

My child is happier, less stressed and has finally found his learning pace since we decided to try FTA. Teachers are supportive and know how to give the child assertive feedback that encourages further learning and improvement.

my son attended online for about a year approximately 6 or 7 years ago. i don't know why they are now asking for me to review their program, but i will spend a few minutes to enlighten folks . he found his history program was directly copied from an online college course. he was able to google needed answers to coursework without bothering to use the school programs/activities in this course and the spanish course. the only class worthwhile, in my opinion, was the english course . he had to write is own papers, though, to be truthful, i don't know if he could have skated through this too if he'd tried.
he was able to work the courses at his pace, but really had no contact with live /online teachers. this worked as he could not attend on a schedule. still, i think there are much cheaper and better programs available to the public these days. would not recommend.

Without the wonderful staff and caring teachers at Forest Trail Academy, my son would not have been able to earn his high school diploma. He was able to complete high school, even after he turned 18. It was very challenging and prepare students for college

Forest Trail Academy is the best choice I could have made for my son’s education. All staff and teachers are supportive in his work and genuinely proud of his successes. I could not be more pleased with how easy everyone is to work with and how much they care about education. The curriculum is on par with skill development and challenge levels. I recommend Forest Trail to anyone who is considering the homeschool option for their child.

My daughter attended Forest Trails for her 4 years of high school (9th - 12th grade) but completed high school in 3 years. She will be attending Fordham University in the Fall. Thank you to her teachers - Ms. Boisvert, Ms. Marla Smith, Ms. Rachel Johnson, and Dr. Theresa Bogema.

Leaving the public school system and enrolling in Forest Trail Academy was the best decision for our family. My child has excelled academically as well as emotionally. Administration and staff are always available and helpful. The platform is easy to understand and use. We plan to stay with Forest Trail through middle and high school.

In high school, my daughter needs a little more support on how to do difficult subjects like geometry & chemistry. It would be nice if the teacher could post a video showing how to solve in each chapter. Other than that, everything is great.

We used the Forrest Trail Academy Curriculum for a short period, however utilized other systems as well. We found the material had good objectives and course content. Our daughter finished her high school studies through another course program however. I would recommend Forrest Trail Academy.

I hated my experience with the school horrible! They don’t deserve no star. My daughter needed a copy of her transcript they refused to release it.
They don’t deserve any star.. they don’t care for the children it’s all business 👶 that’s my opinion

Our 11th grade son is attaining academic success at FTA. The teachers and staff are personal, caring and supportive. FTA is helping our son learn, excel and grow. The curriculum is challenging and the feedback from each teacher on assignments, projects, quizzes and tests is WONDERFUL!! Thank You, FTA, it's the perfect fit for our son!!

No instruction. Garbage curriculum. Non stop aggravation. We are so done. Wasted
thousands of dollars. A year. And a stomach ulcer. This school should be shut down.

Very rigorous program. Sometimes it seems to be college level instead of high school. Responsive teachers.

My son signed up to take their online pre-calculus course. It was advertised to have instructional videos and lessons with follow up worksheets. When he started the course he tried to log onto the videos but none of them worked. He then contacted the program and was emailed back that they have removed all the videos and he should go to Khan Academy for instructional videos. Additionally the worksheets made no sense and we had a math teacher look at them as well and he couldn’t understand half the questions either. I then called the academy and asked for a refund since this is not a course and was falsely advertised. They told me they do not refund money after 5 days even partially despite our efforts to work with them on this. What a waste of time and money.
