My favorite part of this course was checking my answers. It was really helpful when I didn’t understand a problem. It can get really confusing when you don’t have a teacher guiding you, but these went through each problem step by step.



I think Diploma and Careers Institute is a great learning program. I have learned more from this school program than being in a classroom with others for 10 months.




This program is really helping me learn, better than being in school. They give you the information, you practice the material, and when you think you have it, you take the quiz. Fast, simple, and effective. I like that.



I think this school is great!  I can learn the way that works for me.



This is our first year and I couldn’t have been more impressed with the academics and the extremely thought out platform that the students use daily.



We are very happy with our kids’ performance at this school.  We had good communication all the way.  Her teachers communicated with her constantly and gave her the necessary feedback.
