Yo supe D.A Academy por unas amigas que avían estudiado aquí, en cuanto me dieron la información de la escuela fui a preguntar, llegué y me encontré con la profesora Juana muy amigable y buena maestra ese mismo día me inscribí y realmente mi experiencia a sido muy positiva. No tengo dudas en que hice bien al inscribirme tengo quejas de la maestras. muy buen ambiente de estudio tanto maestras como compañeras le agradezco mucho a dios por la oportunidad de que esta escuela se me pusiera en el camino y muy agradecida D.A Academy por dejarme cumplir con una de mis metas. Se la recomiendo al 100%

I would highly recommend this program! It is very hands on and the instructors make sure that we walk away with a full understanding of what we’ve learned. This has given me the opportunity to find experience in offices, as well as finding which speciality I want to peruse. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking into being an assistant!
