Destinations Career Academy of Colorado Students Gather for In-Person Graduation

Online Public School to Celebrate Class of 2017 on June 2

Career Academy of Colorado
(CODCA), an accredited, full-time online
public school program, will celebrate the Class of 2017 with an
in-person graduation ceremony on Friday, June 2 at 5 p.m. on the
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Forty-six high school seniors will graduate from CODCA, the only online
Colorado Department of Education-approved Career Technical Education
(CTE) program in the state. CODCA offers CTE courses in the fields of
health sciences, business, marketing, agriculture, programming, STEM,
and web design, offering students the opportunity to explore career
fields both in and out of the classroom.

CODCA is the first online school in the state to receive the top level
of approval from the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational
Education (SBCCOE) for the business, marketing, health sciences and
programming pathways.

Students statewide in grades 6-12 prepare to earn technical credentials
and may earn college credits and gain workplace experience while still
in high school. Other learning opportunities include interview
preparation, team collaboration and effective communication. Graduates
from CODCA are well prepared to enter a two- or four-year college or the
work force.

“Graduating from CODCA sets students up for future success,” said Teri
Cady, head of school at Destinations Career Academy of Colorado. “Our
students are graduating high school with real-world technical skills
they can put to immediate use after high school, and we can’t wait to
see where their futures take them.”

With a 4.16 grade-point average, Casey Jones is the Class of 2017
valedictorian, while Sarah Kilsch is the salutatorian. Ann Marie
Andrews, a CODCA health sciences teacher, and Angela William, District
33 Colorado senator, will deliver remarks to the graduating class, and
CODCA teachers and staff will be in attendance to recognize the
students’ achievements.

The Class of 2017 has been offered nearly $40,000 in college
scholarships. The graduates report that they have been accepted to a
number of colleges and universities, including Colorado State
University, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, University of
Northern Colorado, University of Lethbridge, Full Sail University,
Aurora Community College, Pueblo Community College, Front Range
Community College, Arapahoe Community College, Frank Phillips College
and Aims Community College. In addition, one student plans to enlist in
the United States Army and another in the U.S. Air Force.
