What is Destinations?

Destinations Career Academy LogoThe Destinations Career Academy at CAVA is a full-time, accredited tuition-free* online program that combines traditional high school courses with industry-relevant, career-focused electives—giving students a jump-start on real-world skills they’ll need for college, career, or both.

California-credentialed teachers provide live online instruction and tailor teaching to student needs. Students can participate in career-oriented clubs, gain workplace skills, and prepare to take industry-recognized certification exams in their chosen career path upon graduation.**

Career-focused courses are based on the knowledge and skills required for each career pathway in the following high-demand industry sectors:

  • Business and Finance: Careers in finance, marketing, and planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating business functions essential to efficient and productive business operations. Learn more about Business and Finance.
  • Marketing, Sales, and Services: Careers in planning, managing, and performing marketing activities to reach organizational objectives. Learn more about Marketing, Sales and Services.

*Families do not pay tuition for a student to attend an online public school. Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided. Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.

**Many Microsoft® Office certificates can be earned after completing one course. Other certificates require more classes to be better prepared, and students who attend Destinations for at least two years will have further exposure to career readiness education courses to be best prepared for certification testing.
