Online High School Academics
Destinations Career Academy of Oregon knows success can look different for everyone, and the journey can take many turns. But no matter the path, we believe in unlocking every learner's potential by meeting them where they are and helping them reach their goals.
That's why Destinations uses quality curriculum from K12—a leading provider of K–12 online learning. Across all grades, K12's curriculum uses a blend of learning elements to accommodate multiple learning styles and maximize both the quality of lessons and the way they are delivered. It establishes learning objectives and thoroughly develops instructional online experiences with animations, interactive games, video, and text.

*The K12 high school catalog is a complete list of the high school courses K12 provides. While Destinations offers a comprehensive selection of courses, not every K12 high school course is available to Destinations students. Information on specific courses of study and available electives are provided upon enrollment. For details, please speak to an enrollment consultant during the enrollment process.
**Many Microsoft® Office certificates can be earned after completing one course.
