Every student that enrolls must go through our orientation process. Students may come to their local office or it will be conducted over the phone. During this orientation process the student’s Instructional Supervisor will show them how to navigate their courses, go over school policies, and show them how to access various resources. QDA has also created an extensive knowledge base to answer frequently asked question. If at any time a student has a question they may contact their Instructional Supervisor or call us toll free at 1-866-968-7032.

At QDA each student is assigned an Instructional Supervisor (IS) to be the main contact for the student and their family. The "IS" is responsible for monitoring the students’ progress on a bi-weekly basic and communicating progress/expectations with the student and their family.

QDA has also invested in a new Student Information System that will allow parents/guardians to monitor progress for all of their students from one account.
