What grades are offered by Destinations Career Academy of Wisconsin?
Destinations offers full-time enrollment for grades 9–12.
What subjects will my child study?
Language arts, math, science, history, art, health/PE and music are the core courses. There are also electives available such as world languages, and we offer career-focused electives in pathways centered around four career fields.
Does the program provide textbooks and other instructional materials?
Yes, we provide educational materials that are needed to complete the program. These books and materials are sent to students directly. The number of books and types of materials depends on the student’s grade level and courses. High school materials are mostly online.
Will my child have the same graduation opportunities as students in traditional public schools?
Yes, we are a public school in Wisconsin, so students can earn a diploma upon successful completion and mastery of course content.
Can my child work at his or her own pace?
Students can adjust the daily pace of independent coursework, so long as they are keeping up with the course schedule. Students work through their lessons using a combination of asynchronous and synchronous (live) learning with their content area teachers and their class cohort and have quizzes, tests, and other assigned schoolwork due on certain dates.
How much time do students spend on the computer?
High school students spend most of the school day online.
Do you provide curriculum for special needs children?
Depending on a child's IEP, we can tailor our curriculum to meet your student's needs. To discuss your child's needs with us, please contact our office, and we will put you in touch with our special education team.
How do students interact socially?
Throughout the year, students will be invited to participate in school outings, field trips (e.g., to historical sites, museums, zoos), picnics, and other social events. We expect local clusters of students and parents to get together on a regular basis in their areas. With online discussions and forums, new types of communities can be formed that are based not on geography and place but on shared interests.
Will this program intrude into my home?
There are no home visits as part of the program, unless you ask your teacher to come to your home (completely optional), and there are no cameras or any other intrusions into your home. This school was created to help your child obtain a first-class education and serve your family's needs. If you ever feel that it is not right for your family or your child, you can withdraw at any time.
How do I enroll my student?
*Course materials vary by course and school.
