As sooon as we were readym we were applying for jobs and, had I not come, I would not have known how to correctly apply and wouldn't have gotten the job. I'm sure about that!

Jodi T. (MA)- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Restaurant Steward at Norwegian Cruise Line
My experience at The Travel Academy was fun. I met some awesome people. The school was very helpful and actually changed my mind about cruise lines. I had no interest in cruising until I came here, and now I have a job with Norwegian Cruise Line, as well as my friends. The class was sometimes hard, but overall fun. I will soon be returning to the South, and then on to Honolulu, Hawaii- thanks to The Travel Academy. You guys showed me what I can do and never to limit myself. There are so many options, it's unreal! Thanks.
~ Amber W. (LA)- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Restaurant Steward at Norwegian Cruise Line

All my teachers are very loving and compassionate people who are dedicated to what they do, The have pushed me to become an even better person than I was yesterday and walked me through each subject effectively.

I met so many wonderful people and learned so much valuable inormation that would help me succedd in the travel industry. The teachers are some of the best I have ever had and taught me everything I need to know to succeed in the cruise industry."
~ Daniel H. (MN)- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Restaurant Steward at Norwegian Cruise Line
"Attending The Travel Academy has been the best thing that has ever happened in my life. It's much more than what I expected. I have gained a lot of travel knowledge and industry skills. Everyday is a new day at The Travel Academy. You always leave learning something new. I'm only halfway through the program, and I was offered a position at Trans States Airlines. I can't wait to hop into that aircraft and start using my knowledge I gained at The Travel Academy. Thank you for everything, teachers and staff."
~ Erika M.- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Trans States Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"The experience I've had at The Travel Academy has been incredible. I've met people from all over the U.S. and even outside the country. Thanks to the amazing instructors, I got hired at Trans States Airlines my fifth week! I will be starting my dream career in just a few months. I wouldn't have done it without the help and support from The Travel Academy."
Cynthia P.- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Trans States Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"The Travel Academy Academy was the best school for me. Since I came here, I learned a lot, especially flight attendant training and duties. The Travel Academy also provided the best instructors. They taught me like I was their own child. They answered all of my questions, and they were always there for me. Without The Travel Academy, I would not have gotten this far with this opportunity. Thank you so much!"
~ Ashley Y.- (graduated March 2015)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Trans States Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"Attending The Travel Academy was the best decision I have ever made. It wasn't an easy journey to get there, but once at TTA, I excelled. I went into it thinking I wanted to be a flight attendant, but as I learned the other areas of the industry, I decided that being in the cruising industry is where I would be the happiest, but learning it all and having options was a nice benefit of this program. After applying to several cruise lines, both while attending TTA and after graduation, I stumbled upon Oceania Cruises, an upper premium cruise line that offers mid-size ships at mid-size prices. They are based in Miami, but have a call center in Omaha, NE which is where I live. As a Cruise Specialist in the reservation center it is imperative for me know the product, terminology and the deck plans to each ship and all the amenities they have to offer. Everything that was covered in the Cruise Line class from the terminology to the popular cruise routes and even the history of cruising and the many cruise lines has already be very helpful and useful in this new job. Without the Travel Agent and Cruise class Portions of The Travel Academy curriculum, I wouldn't be excelling as much as I am. Even though I am not using Sabre, knowing the basics of a GDS system has helped tremendously. In addition, knowing the airport codes, geography and major attractions at popular tourist sites is proving useful. I am very thankful to The Travel Academy and the program they offer. My job is already proving to be a great fit. I have impressed the trainers, supervisors and even the other trainees. Thank you to The Travel Academy for the education and training. Best experience I have had in my life up to this point!"

~ Esther O. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Front Desk Receptionist at Holiday Inn
"I wanted to let The Travel Academy know how thankful I truly am that you guys believed in me. I was very happy to be offered the training position at Mesa, but I never thought I was going to leave school before I had a real "see you later." I am so very proud of everyone. Our very first day here at Mesa we took our entry exam, and I found out today I got a 96%. I never thought I would truly be where I am, and the only place I have to go is UP! Once again thank you so much for everything. I will always have a special place for The Travel Academy in my heart."

~ Jessica R. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Mesa Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"...was the best decision I have ever made. It was my dream to become a flight attendant. The Travel Academy made that dream a reality. What I loved most was all the amazing support from the instructors and staff. When I first started I wasn't that confident. But in my short time here I overcame one of my biggest fears, which is public speaking. If it weren't for the staff, instructors, and all the amazing friends I made at The Travel Academy, I would still be a shy girl that sat in the back of the classroom. Now I'm confident and extremely excited to take on my new career as a flight attendant for PSA Airlines. I owe it all to The Travel Academy."
~ Jessica B. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at PSA Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier)
"...at first was overwhelming...Little did I know November 7th, 2014 would change my life forever. PSA Airlines came [to The Travel Academy], and I'm very blessed they chose me to be a part of their team. The Travel Academy has changed me into a great and better person, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Anyone thinking about attending should definitely enroll. It's the best choice I've ever chosen, and you meet some of the greatest people. All of the teachers are amazing and want to see you succeed and go far in life."
~ Meagan P. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at PSA Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier)
"...was the best best choice I have made so far. The Travel Academy has so much to offer in the industry. They make your dream come true from the many job opportunities they have. I got hired by GoJet Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier) AND PSA Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier). I am going to go for PSA's base in Dayton, Ohio to pursue my dream job as a flight attendant!"
~ Fabineta D. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at PSA Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier)
"...was a breath of fresh air! My instructors were so helpful when it came to learning new material. I came into this programme as a caterpillar, and now I'll be flying away as a bold butterfly. Thanks, Travel Academy, for a wonderful ten weeks of fun and learning!"
~ Shannon M. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at PSA Airlines (US Airways/American Airlines carrier)
"...was phenomenal! Attending The Travel Academy was by far the best decision I've made. I have met a lot of great people. The instructors and staff are very supportive and encouraging. I am thankful for this experience. Without The Travel Academy, I wouldn't have had the chance of becoming a flight attendant with Mesa Airlines. I would especially like to thank Cindy, Michele, and TJ for their continuous support and guidance. If I could do it all again, I would!"

"...was absolutely unforgettable. I have made an abundance of friends, many of which I believe will be friends for a lifetime. The instructors have been so phenomenal and have encouraged me since day one. I have learned so much about the travel industry and about myself since coming here. If it weren't for this amazing school, I would not have been hired as quickly as I was. I would especially like to thank Peggy and TJ for their continuous support and guidance. The entire staff is just wonderful. Thank you so much, Travel Academy, for making my dreams come true! I cannot wait to share all of my adventures with you all!"
~Hannah I. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Mesa Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"The Travel Academy is one of the best experiences of my life. The teachers and staff are some of the most supportive people I have ever had the pleasure to learn from. I honestly couldn't have gotten a job at Mesa Airlines without The Travel Academy. They gave me so many options to choose from, and they never let me give up. I highly recommend The Travel Academy if you want a lifelong career and fulfilling your dreams in the skies. Thanks, Travel Academy, for an amazing experience I will NEVER forget and friends I will have for a lifetime."

I told myself that I would work my hardest and try my best, and now I have accepted a job offer in Santa Barbara, California and will be there by the end of the month. Without The Travel Academy and the amazing instructors, I wouldn't have had this opportunity. I love The Travel Academy!"
~ Heather W. (graduated November 2014)- Hired as a Customer Service Representative at BBA Aviation
"Ever since I was a young girl, I have always been fascinated and amazed by the men and women who adorned the skies in their perfectly pressed uniforms, serving and taking care of passengers . Secretly, I always wanted to do that one day. So as I graduated with a four year degree I found that it was the perfect time to finally pursue my dream. That’s when a friend told me about The Travel Academy.
By far, The Travel Academy has been the greatest and most valuable experience I have had in the race to reach my goal of being a flight attendant. The program at this academy was very concerted, and everything that is expected of you is discussed beforehand so you know exactly what you are going into. The faculty adds to the unique nature of the program. They are really there to guide you and to clear any doubts that you have about anything. I was also blessed with friends that were both encouraging and motivating to one another, and the 10 week program really gave me a lifetime of memories. I would recommend The Travel Academy to ANYONE!!"

"I genuinely love the experience I had here. All the instructors were so helpful and professional. I made the best decision by coming here. I met a lot of great people that I will cherish memories of forever.
~ Dinees T. (graduted 6-6-14)- Hired as a Flight Attendant at Mesa Airlines (United Airlines/US Airways carrier)
"...was a dream come true. This school taught me so much about everything in the travel industry such as cruise lines, flight attendant, geography, Sabre, and travel agent. The mock open house and interview questions really helped me for the real deal with different companies. I learned a lot about being a professional. Before coming to this school, I was not even close to looking or acting professional. I know I have matured and grown a lot from coming here. My family and friends have seen a totally different side of me. I'm more confident and happier than ever before. I would have never thought I could be this close to my dream. Thank you, Travel Academy!"

~ Teri H. (IL)
...was amazing. I have been wanting to attend since 2011 and finally got the courage to come. I learned a lot of helpful things and met some amzing people along the way. I almost wish I would have done the 300-hour course so I could be here longer.
~Avery G. (OH)
...gave me opportunity after opportunity and opened up more doors than I thought it could have. Because of the Academy, I am on my way to an open house I am well prepared for. I loved every moment of this journey.
~Shavon P. (PA)

I came to The Travel Academy to become a flight attendant. I found so much more- family, friends, love, and the opportunity to learn and make an amazing difference- not only in my life, but also in the lives of those I come into contact with. I am truly blessed to be part of such a wonderful place and to study side-by-side with such loving and caring people.
~Abdullahi S. (MN)
...Was the greatest I have had in my life. I came [to The Travel Academy] with nothing, but now I am leaving full. The Travel Academy has given me a whole new outlook on life, and for that I'm grateful! I have made many friends from different countries. Whoever is considering [attending], what are you waiting for?! Do it! See you in the skies!
~Tammy M. (WI)
...Was worth waiting for. I have never felt as confident and comfortable anywhere else as much as I did at [The Travel Academy]. I'm really going to pass this name on to many for the rest of my life and come back to visit and give my testimonial to new or "to be" students. The Travel Acadmy has truly felt like a family. I wouldn't trade this experience for the world. Thank you all!

Dear Mr. Armstrong,
As a current student attending The Travel Academy, and a graduate in the next two weeks, I wanted to send you an e-mail personally thanking you for this once in a lifetime opportunity you have given me.This whole experience has been nothing but a good one that kept getting better day by day.
As you know, I had some obstacles I had to get through in order to come out here. Before I knew it I overcame them and I was on my way, prepping myself for what lied ahead. Residing in New York and never once visiting Minnesota nor knowing much about it, I was quite nervous. To make things worse, I never lived with strangers and knew this was going to be my first challenge before the first day of school started.
For not knowing anyone and at one point feeling alone, I can happily say everything worked out perfectly never thought within a ten week period two strangers would turn out to be two of the greatest people I have ever met as well as ones I personally consider great friends. I look forward to the relationship that we will continue to have over the years.
Another great thing that happened while I was out here was getting offered a job at Albany International Airport back at home. I still do not know to this day if it was the job offering that was exciting or the way I landed it. I was online checking out Albany Airport's job listings, and decided to make a phone call for a position I was very interested in. I called the airport for more information regarding the job, and the gentleman said, “I am sorry ma'am, but unfortunately we are receiving a lot of phone calls at the time regarding this job, so if you could call back once a week maybe then we will be able to help you out, or with another position." Rather disappointed, I responded saying " Thank you, I will be calling you back, and just to give you a little information about myself, my name is Ashley Lomio, and I am currently a student at The Travel Academy." He then responded back in utter excitement, " WHAT!? REALLY!? IN MINNESOTA!?" I answered back saying yes, and before I knew it I was told to call him as soon as I was home visiting and he would meet me as soon as I called!
Not only has your school helped me gain knowledge of the travel industry, the teachers were also there to guide and help me as much as they possibly could along the way. I truly believe your staff is an invaluable asset to your academy and I will continue to appreciate them, as well as you for all of your support.
Ashley L. (NY)
I am forever grateful to have had Attended The Travel Academy. After I graduated in 2010 I was quickly hired on with Colgan Air as a flight attendant. While working at Colgan Air I gained a new family, and many memories. After having a experience in regional airlines I wanted more, I applied to JetBlue Airways a year later and enjoyed flying all over the U.S. and all over the Caribbean. JetBlue was a fantastic company and I would recommend it to anyone, but I had the itch to travel more and do more. I took two years off and flew all over the mid-west in a Cessna 172 piloted by a friend I had met while flying commercially (I even got to take a few flight lessons myself!). From there I left the U.S. to start a journey in Central America, where I resided in Panama City, Panama and continued to travel, explore, and create everlasting memories. I have been back in the U.S. for three months and have received an offer from Republic Airlines flying under Chautauqua Airlines. I am so excited to learn, grow, and experience more.
Attending The Travel Academy was not only beneficial to me but my experience has changed my mother’s life as well. Although she did not attend The Travel Academy she was so inspired by my experience that she decided almost two years ago to change her life and do something amazing. She became a flight attendant with Chautauqua Airlines as well. Myself and my family owe it all to The Travel Academy for without them, my office would surely not be in the sky, I would not have all the experiences, memories, and lifelong friends that I do now. The Travel Academy doesn't just help you to find a new 'job' they give you all the knowledge and help to change your life and make it the best it could possibly be. Thank you very much for all of my success and experiences. I've loved every minute of my life since attending!
"I wanted to give a big thanks to The Travel Academy and especially to the great staff. They were all so helpful and caring while I was there in January. I made life long friends and still keep in touch with both the academy and classmates. The academy most importantly taught me how to be professional and what this industry expects of us. I had two job offers before I graduated and took a flight attendant position with Mesa Air Group. I was more than prepared for training thanks to the academy and breezed through it. I am now working for the biggest airline in the world American Airlines as a flight attendant. I appreciate how much the staff cares for their students and they really prepare you for success. Thank you all so much!".
-Ari S, Arizona- Currently a flight attendant with American Airlines!
Robert B, Florida, accepted a flight attendant position with Delta Airlines! Previously, Robert was a flight attendant with Go Jet Airlines, a regional carrier for US Airways | Delta Airlines. Robert is a great example of the free lifetime placement assistance graduates of The Travel Academy receive. We work with you until you are hired, and then again when you want to advance your travel career!
"I have never experienced so many butterflies flying around my stomach during the five hour drive to my new home in Eagan, MN. I was completely stepping out of my comfort zone moving to a different state and to a place where I knew absolutely no one. The apartments we stayed in are extremely accommodating and it is impossible to not make a new friend or two with so many Travel Academy students running around. I am so grateful for the many beautiful people I got to meet, all from different backgrounds who are all so eager to learn and help one another out. Three weeks into the program I was presented an amazing opportunity to fly out to Chicago and interview with Norwegian Cruise Lines working aboard Pride of America a cruise ship that sails around Hawaii 365 days a year. A week after my interview I had received an email congratulating me on a job and I was hired for a higher position than I even applied for! I was so ecstatic and I could never have accomplished this without the help from the staff of The Travel Academy. The teachers are so involved in helping out each and every student to achieve their dreams. The opportunities are endless and I highly recommend this academy to anyone who wants to pursue a career in the travel industry."
~ Samantha T., Oshkosh, WI
"As your most recent attendee and graduate of your academy. I wanted to extend my gratitude for all that was given to me in this 300 hour/ 10 weeks of training. My tuition fee does not compare to all that I received through the wonderful Instructors who are fountains of knowledge, encouragers and motivators. They believed in me from day one and I felt it through their smiles every morning coming in to class, asking me how I was doing on a daily basis and if I had any concerns, questions or comments about anything that I could go to them at any time. I loved coming to class every day and was sad when I would miss class due to illness. I was respected, given the attention I needed, I was encouraged and they did not doubt my success.
Housing was a great experience; the apartments were clean, warm and inviting. Meeting and living with my roommates was a great match because we all got along so well. Our daily interaction and conversations were a delight due to that we were all from different parts of the US and one from Puerto Rico, what a great bunch we were. Thank you Katelynn for your attention to my needs at the apartments if I had any, and thank you for making me feel at home.
Mr. Armstrong, I appreciate your attention from my initial registration process to when I came into your office bombarding you with more questions and concerns as I arrived at the academy. Thank you for making me feel at ease and helping me understand my concerns. You were kind, gentle and the best part of our time was when I walked out of your office feeling more confident about being your student at The Travel Academy."
~ Nora C., California
"As a young boy, I've always had big dreams. While searching for a "flight attendant" school on Google I came across one of the most amazing blessings in my life, The Travel Academy. To say that The Travel Academy has helped me in succeeding to make my dreams a reality is an understatement. The Travel Academy has given me so much knowledge and a new found confidence for this new chapter of my life I am about to embark on. From the incredible instructors to the office staff and even the housing staff, every single person employed with The Travel Academy really wants you to succeed. Every day, no matter which employee I run into they always greet me with a smile and an optimistic attitude. Not to mention I feel as if I have a personal relationship with everyone employed with The Travel Academy. Or maybe it's just me, because they make every single person feel like family. They really take into consideration that you are far away from home and succeed at making you feel comfortable. I could go on and on about how helpful this program has been. I am currently a student and I will be graduating in a couple of days on November 15, 2013. I have already had two job offers while being here. On the Norwegian Cruise Line and the other as a flight attendant for GoJet Airlines. Today in class I received a phone call from Delta Airlines letting me know that I now have an interview with them. Needless to say, the opportunities here are endless. Without The Travel Academy, I know for a fact I wouldn't have secured myself two job offers in the travel industry. I would 100% recommend this to anyone interested in the travel industry. I can't wait to start my new adventure in the travel industry and I owe it to The Travel Academy. I thank every single one of you for giving me an endless amount of opportunities. I will always be grateful!"
~ Michael C., KY
"I just wanted to update you on my job status. I have had two interviews this week so far and have two more tomorrow & Friday. Monday I was offered a position as a passenger service agent with Air Serve and today had an interview with Air Terminal Services for a passenger service agent as well . That went great and I was invited back for a second interview for a contract with Spirit Airlines on Friday. Tomorrow US Airways is flying me to DAB for an interview for a gate agent position so fingers crossed I end up moving to the sunshine state. I will keep you updated & let you know Friday afternoon how things went & what my next step is. I just want to say thank you so much for all the help you've given me it's beyond appreciated. I have so many opportunities coming my way & I just have The Travel Academy to thank for that. Hope all is well for you guys. I will be in touch."
~ April K., TX
“My experience at The Travel Academy was a great experience. I was very fortunate to know that there was a school that specialized in the field I wanted to peruse in. The instructors made this experience for me very worthwhile. Having this experience and already have a job offer makes me so fortuniate that I came to attend this school. Though these ten weeks seemed to have gone by really fast, I am truly going to miss it. The instructors were very caring and you can tell that they really want all of us to succeed. Special thank you to Curt, from the numerous phone calls I have made asking about the school, I was finally persuaded to attend and I am so thankful that I did. I can’t thank everyone enough for helping me achieve my goal of becoming a flight attendant. Thank you again for this amazing opportunity! God Bless!”
~ Adam F., WA GoJet – Flight Attendant
My experience at The Travel Academy was overall very beneficial. Not only teaching me necessary appearance qualities, but also everything I needed to know about the travel industry. From destinations, Sabre, world geography, to airport codes, basic safety for FA’s and cruise lines and so much more! Knowing all this now only makes me a better candidate to future jobs! Coming in only wanting to be a flight attendant and leaving wanting to do it all! It’s incredible. I would like to say thank you to my instructors being the best you could be and offering all the knowledge there was to offer! Without The Travel Academy, I wouldn’t be where I am today nor know as much as I do. The ten weeks went by fast and couldn’t be more proud of myself as I am now. Thank you!”

Having lived in a small town for twenty years and not having any idea of what I wanted to do with my life, I had to sit down and make a decision. My decision ended up being travel, and at first I didn’t know exactly how I was going to reach my goal, but I knew it was one that I had to accomplish. After hours of looking at different ways to travel, I knew that The Travel Academy was my best bet in getting the best job that I could. So at the begging of September, I packed my bags, hopped on a plane, and made the connecting flight from Valdosta to Eagan. I had no idea what to expect, except that I was going to graduate from a ten week program with my dream job. Through this ten week process, I have learned that it is so much more than getting a job. Between flight attendant training, cruise line training, career development, geography, travel theory, and SABRE; I am leaving with more knowledge about the travel and hospitality industry than I ever thought possible. I can’t thank the instructors enough for how much they have helped me, without them I know that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to have two job offers before I graduated. I believe that if you choose The Travel Academy for your future, you will not be disappointed.”

“My experience at The Travel Academy has been very rewarding. Not only have I learned so much and grown as a person, but also met some lifelong friends. The instructors were so helpful and honestly cared about if we learned the material. I would defiantly recommend The Travel Academy to anyone seeking a job in the travel industry. I’m very glad I chose to come and I hate to leave but now I’m ready to start my career, and love to go to work every day.”

“My experience at The Travel Academy has been one of the best things to happen to me! I know so much and it will help allot in the future! If it wasn’t for this school I wouldn’t even know where to start on how to achieve my dream as a flight attendant! Everyone here is so kind and positive. This program was worth stepping outside my comfort zone and leaving Michigan and doing things I thought would never truly happen. It became so surreal and a major blessing. Not only being proud of myself, I love that my family is very proud of me too. Without my instructors, family, roommates and my own self-confidence, I don’t know how any of this could have been possible. Thank you so much for everything you guys (TTA) have done. You guys rock!

“My experience at The Travel Academy has been an experience that I will never forget. I met the nicest people you could ever want to meet and their willingness to help you made me feel grateful. I’ve learned so much since I’ve been here and being older you sometimes think you’ve learned pretty much everything but you haven’t. Everyone was so patient and understanding and exceptional at what they do from the instructors to office staff to maintenance. I’ve enjoyed my stay and I would like to thank everyone for being so kind. I appreciate all you have done for me. Thank you so much!”

"TTA has made my dream come true. I am truly grateful to the amazing staff at TTA. I was well prepared when interviewing for Compass Airlines. I came home after graduation extremely satisfied with my accomplishment at TTA. I feel extremely confident, very prepared and excited to move forward in the travel industry. I am also very happy to announce that after graduation and only 4 days after interviewing, I was offered and accepted a position with Compass Airlines. I honestly feel that I would have not of been able to do this without my teachers and assistance of the staff of TTA. Thank you!
