Review 8/22/2010
When my husband and I began looking for online private schools for our two children, we did our research first. As members of the FPEA (Florida Parent Educators Association)we looked into and interviewed several online schools, both public and private, at their annual conference. We kept coming back to Forest Trail Academy as our number one choice. Not only was the price just right, they also offered a great payment plan and multi-child discount. More importantly, they offered all the necessary courses as well as some electives that my children were really excited about, such as Television Production for the future "director and producer" in our family. They tailored the classes to fit their specific needs and the counselor spent a lot of quality time with both myself and my children over the phone ensuring that everyone's needs were clearly met. Throughout the year, the counselor would check in by phone and go over the progress that had been made thus far. Questions about assignments or technical issues were only an email away and were handled in a very timely manner. The courses are challenging and informative and require effort from the students to complete. However, it allows the student the freedom to take as much time as needed to learn and/or research and really take in the knowledge, unlike so many public schools out there. The school even has a virtual student lounge, virtual clubs, student chats and teacher classroom chats...all the things that allow the children to really connect with their school and the other students, even from their own home if they choose to. This has been a wonderful first year for us at Forest Trail Academy. We recommend this school to everyone we know. We are just finishing up our first year and have already set our second year in motion for both children. The children plan on graduating high school with Forest Trail Academy. We highly recommend this as a first choice alternative to public schools!
