After graduating from Continental Academy, I applied at UPS. In my life, never has anyone given me the support that Continental Academy gave me. I want to thank the people of Continental Academy for their support and care. They really cared about me!

I have had the worst experience with the admissions department. I asked to get the facilities' manager contact info (Ii had a specific question about the school's lighting that only they could answer) and an admissions officer asked me if I was on drugs and to please hang up the phone.

Not Bad! Go online and see if any school tell it to you the way Continental tell it to you. Not bad! I enjoyed the course and the people are helpful. Again, not bad! Gloria Grandmother of 6

My son is an amateur tennis player who has always been homeschooled. He completed Continental Academy's PACE program and he enjoyed the fact that he had access to his online program 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our family found their program to be very convenient and very affordable. Soon my son will become a pro tennis player. We are so proud of him.

I am proud that our son Alfonso graduated from Continental Academy's PACE program. Alfonso has had his challenges as a young man and an adult male. However, the seven months he spent working online on the PACE program was a positive and huge growth point in our lives. Continental had the talent and time to work with Alfonso to help him bring about a successful experience in his life. Thumps up to Continental Academy.

A friend of mine had a job opening at a good hotel. The job required that I show proof that I graduated from high school however, I didn't have the proof. With Continentan Academy I was able to land the job. I can now see why having a diploma is so important.

Thank God for Continental Academy. My son was always having some kind of missteps in high school. Continental Academy is a blessing. It took him around a year to finish, but they were very considerate of his needs and ways. Well, now he is working full time at DMV!

As a public school teacher of 32 years, I'm impressed with Continental Academy. In life, you get what you pay for! My son finished the program in six months. Their curriculum is well structured, focused, and the technology is student friendly. What impressed me the most was the degree of involvement the Academy has in the student's progress and daily school activities. Thumbs up for Continental Academy!

Be careful using this school. My son took their classes to get high school diploma on time for his age, because he was held back in third grade. He graduated last year. After alot of research and speaking with Continental Academy, they assured me it would be accepted at colleges. He wants a career in Firefighting. He went through all of the classes and courses and passed with flying colors. The Fire department said he was first on the list to hire, but could not because they will not accept the diploma. He has also found out that most colleges will not accept it. He will have to get GED now. So, he did not get hired. All that money and now my son is suffering due to their negligence.

Open Door Education has found me a job. So I would like to tell others who may be in New York and need a job they should go to Open Door Education for Continental Academy's program. I have also been accepted into a college. Whoever has said that this program is a fake really do not k now what they are talking about. Through Open Door Education I have had no problems.

Continental Academy's High School Proficiency diploma is good enough for me. Look, there is no way I can pass the state high school exit exam or the GED. I have been up to bat 3 times already. I was able to graduate from CA in 3 months and I now have my high school proficiency diploma and that is good enough for me. In life you have to be realistic on what you can do and not do!

Continental Academy is my BIG +. I could of graudated from my local public school, but I chose not to graduate. I could of gotten my GED, I didn't have the discipline. I only have myself to blame. Then I found Continental Academy online courses. It was great, I really enjoyed it. I know that I can not go to Harvard. But Continental Acdemy has benefited me at work and as a person. It has made me feel good of myself as a person. Continental Academy is my big + of my 32 years of living. Thank you, you have helped me!

I tried the GED twice with no success. I'm not willing to attend the night time high school program. I enrolled with Continental with my eyes wide open. They spell everything out for you in an easy to understand manner. I understood that I wasn't going to college with this diploma. However, I was able to get a casino job with excellent benefits because I earned my high school diploma at Continental Academy. Eight months ago I did not qualify for the job. I can't thank Continental enough. Go Continental !!!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
