"I remember the day I called and talked to Curt. I was working for Child Protective Services and had removed two children from their parents; it was an emotional day to say the least! I received my bachelor's degree in social work and worked with CPS for two years. That day, speaking to Curt, I knew that I was no longer a fit for the job I was working. Curt reassured me that I was a perfect candidate for TTA and on complete faith I signed up for the program. With the assistance of Stephanie, I was accepted for the SELF loan. I originally signed up for the April 2016 class, but had difficulty closing cases for CPS and leaving some of my families I had worked with. Again, with the amazing help and encouragement from Stephanie and Curt, I was enrolled for the June starting date. I anxiously left Texas and flew to Minnesota to begin The Travel Academy. Having my degree and all of my previous work experience and knowledge could not have prepared me as much as TTA did. The experience I gained from this program is priceless. Going back, the only thing I would change is the fact that I didn't decide to enroll in this program years earlier. At first it was hard being back in a classroom and there were times I questioned if this was for me. The teachers and my classmates were always supportive and we all helped each other along the way. I learned more than travel knowledge, I learned invaluable life lessons that I will have for the rest of my working career. "
"So far my experience at The Travel Academy has been absolutely amazing. The knowledge of the instructors combined with the hands-on experience has been amazing and helped me to retain an abundance of information. Not only has the experience at the school been great, but the friends I have made will last a lifetime! I would recommend The Travel Academy to anyone looking to get into the travel industry!"
"The Travel Academy has been a life changing experience. The instructors are spectacular and I learned so much more that I had originally imagined I would. I have not only gained knowledge in flight attendant duties and responsibilities but also knowledge in cruise, geography, terminology, and travel agent systems/activities. Along this journey I have made life long friends and I can't wait to continue my journey in travel. Thanks, Travel Academy!"
"I had a dream for years of being a flight attendant. I even at one point was hired by an airline in my early twenties. The airline that hired me cross-trained and I had to learn other jobs before even being considered for a flight attendant. Six months into the job, I met my husband, married, and was needed to help with the businesses that my husband owned. I left the airline, but the airline industry never left me. After raising my three children, I decided to make a call to The Travel Academy. I made that call at 57 years of age. I had my birthday here at TTA where I'm now 58 years old. On my birthday, I received an email that I was accepted for training at PSA. The day after my birthday, I had an interview and was hired with Republic Airways. I thank The Travel Academy for helping me reach my goal to be a flight attendant. The support from the staff and students has been incredible. I would recommend The Travel Academy to women like myself that had a dream but maybe had to put it aside for whatever reason. It's never too late and the tools given to me here at The Travel Academy have been instrumental in my airline placements. Thank you to The Travel Academy!"
"My experience has been so amazing! I've learned so much in such a short time and I wouldn't take back anything! I've met so many amazing people from all over the world and I'll remember this part of my life forever! Huge thanks to all the instructors who have cared so much about all of us and put in so much time. "
"I contacted The Travel Academy on a whim during a low point in my life. Steve spoke with me and assured me that I could achieve anything. The very next day I was enrolled and starting my new life journey. The Travel Academy was hands down the best decision I've ever made to further my education and ultimately find myself. It's amazing what you can accomplish in only a few weeks. Just three months ago I was reclusive and working a nine to five office job. Today, I'm beaming with joy and am pursuing my dreams as a flight attendant! My instructors and the entire TTA staff have been nothing but helpful and encouraging. I'd like to share my gratitude to this phenomenal program for helping me discover the person I was always meant to be. I only wish I would have attended sooner! "Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward for there you have been and there you will always long to return.""
"It was the fastest 10 weeks I've ever lived. The Travel Academy, I feel, has trained me and prepared me to become a flight attendant. I was hesitant about my decision to come here at first, but now that graduation is here, I realize that it had to be The Travel Academy. I received three job offers and am incredibly excited to begin my career as a flight attendant. I want to say thank you to all of my instructors and to anyone thinking about coming here, do it! It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. "
"I'm really grateful that I had the opportunity to come to The Travel Academy/ What I learned really helped me to excel with my interview. I really want to thank Miss Lynn for having a passion for her job and her students. I would greatly recommend The Travel Academy to anyone that is interested!!!"
"Coming to TTA has been one of the best choices I have ever made. It has more than prepared me for my future career as a flight attendant and I will forever be grateful to TTA and their staff for all they have done for me."
"I came to The Travel Academy in hopes of following my dreams in becoming a flight attendant. I've gained abundant knowledge about the travel industry that I will carry with me into my career. The administration and instructors have been so helpful in ensuring my success. I have gained so much confidence and knowledge, and for that I am so thankful. I couldn't have made it this far without my TTA family! "We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.""
"Coming to The Travel Academy was a great decision. I have learned wonderful things about the travel and tourism industry. The instructors are very helpful and knowledgeable. They help prepare you for the career of your choice, and even help by being supportive at interviews. Miss TJ is amazing and always keeps you motivated. I will cherish my time spent at The Travel Academy and the many wonderful friends I met here. Thank you for all the support you have shown me over the last ten weeks. "
"My experience at TTA was wonderful! This was definitely a great investment. I feel prepared to take on my career thanks to TTA training. The instructors and staff are friendly and extremely helpful. I have also made great friends that I will cross paths with. I will miss and love TTA!"
"Before The Travel Academy, I felt stuck and unfulfilled, but I followed my heart and attended The Travel Academy. TTA has made my dreams a reality. The instructors pushed and encouraged me at the same time and they gave me the confidence and courage to soar in to the next chapter of my life. I'm so excited that I received a job offer from Republic Airways - my first choice! I'm ready to tackle the training and experience the time of my life! I'm so happy that I decided to attend The Travel Academy. The instructors and staff really care about you. I felt their compassion every step of the way. I've made great friends who encouraged and inspired me during the beginning of my journey and I can't wait to see all of them at Republic! "
"Being a flight attendant is my lifetime goal and The Travel Academy prepared, helped, and motivated me to make my dream a reality. This whole experience was extremely amazing. I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to the instructors and staff; you will always be a part of my wonderful career. At The Travel Academy, we are family and there is a lot of teamwork to help each other and I am very grateful to be a part of it. "
"Coming to The Travel Academy was the best decision I've ever made. I have made so many lifelong friends and unforgettable memories. The instructors were amazing and helpful every step of the way. "
"I've had an amazing experience here at The Travel Academy. I've learned so much that'll be useful for future training at the airlines. Every here is super supportive and friendly. Coming to The Travel Academy has been by far the best decision I've made. They definitely own up to all the possibilities they offer. I refer this academy to anyone who is looking into starting a career in the travel industry. I'm so thankful for having the opportunity to attend and meet amazing people. "
"Attending The Travel Academy has prepared me for the career I have wished and dreamed of. I had a wonderful experience and also met a lot of wonderful people around the country. Thank you so much TTA and to all my beautiful instructors for helping me make my dreams fly!"
"Coming to TTA was a new adventure for me but it did help me get the career of my dreams!"
"I'm such a planner. I like to plan every detail and be in the know. I quit my job, moved across the country (to a state and city that I've never been to) to go to a school I barely found out about, and not know a single person going (also not knowing what to expect course-wise, or if I would get a job or where I'd live). I feel like I'm on the greatest adventure of my life and am following my dreams. I have not regretted taking this chance. I've loved every moment and have worked my tail off to learn everything extensively. I've met so many interesting people here from all walks of life and all parts of the world. I can only imagine what life will be like working for SkyWest!"
"Coming to The Travel Academy has been both life and career changing and by far the best decision that I have made in a long time! The energy, friendliness, and diversity of all the students makes each day a treat. I am making many cherished friendships that will be lifelong. The instructors are a dedicated crew who even take their time outside of class to help prepare us for interviews and to support us at open house interviews locally. The education, support, and practice with resume and cover letter preparation, mock interviews, and personal introductions were instrumental in obtaining a job offer with SkyWest Airlines. Thank you, Travel Academy, for helping make my dreams of a flight attendant career a reality!"
"TTA has opened my eyes on what the travel industry is like. I feel that the Travel Academy staff has done a great job providing us the information we need. I'm very blessed to be a part of the team!"
"It's a great experience, and although being away from home was very hard for me, The Travel Academy helped me restore my confidence to be independent. I'm also developing a strong foundation of professionalism and career development. Thank you for everything and I greatly appreciate it! "
"This has been an awesome experience. I have gained so much important knowledge and learned so many skills to get me started in the travel industry. The instructors are highly qualified and very personable and eager to share their skills, training and motivation with us. The entire Travel Academy staff are very helpful, polite, and friendly. I met people from all over the world and have made new and memorable friendships. I highly recommend The Travel Academy as your first step into the travel industry. "
"I've been trying to get a flight attendant position since I was eighteen. TTA has made everything more real and possible and has helped me with everything I was missing. As much as a home person I am, and I love my town, community, and family, I'm thrilled to start my new career!
Thank you to the teachers for everything, students for support, and my red class for their love, support, and help. Go Jets! "

"TTA helped me get my dream job as a flight attendant! "
"We find that graduates of The Travel Academy possess the safety knowledge and customer service skills that we look for in our Flight Attendants.

"The staff at TTA is great and very sweet. They prepared me for the job at NCL. I am looking forward to sailing the Hawaiian Islands. "
"Awww! I LOVE YOU ALL. You guys have been so sweet. Shout out to Miss Lynn for being so glamorous and to Miss Julie for being spectacularly amazing. I appreciate all of the staff and another shout out to Curt for his excellence. Thank you to everyone for all the encouragement and for helping to restore confidence in me. I will miss you all but don't worry because I will be back to visit!"
"Coming to TTA has taught me about the world of travel! I am so glad I made the decision to come here, not only because I have learned what it takes to be a flight attendant, work on a cruise ship, and become a travel agent but because I have also met some amazing people along the way."

"The Travel Academy has prepared me for the future. They have taught me things dealing with the cruise industry that I will always remember. "
"Attending The Travel Academy was a good experience for me and I truly think I would not have gotten this position without my background in GDS systems, travel theory, and some points of relationship marketing. I'm really excited to start my new career and imagine it will be something long term. Thank you to all my teachers! "
"My experience at TTA was enjoyable, different, and a fun experience. I learned so much in only 10 weeks, more that I ever expected. I would definitely recommend this school to someone looking for an easy foot in the door for the travel industry. "
"I loved it! I feel like this was excellent prep for entering the travel industry. We learned specific procedures for certain companies, had excellent interview and application preparation, and were educated in all fields. I gained a lot more confidence at this school and I'm really glad that I came here. "
"I am so happy that I have found this school! I have learned so much while being here and met many great people! The teachers are fantastic and were very friendly. They helped me get my job and I can't thank them enough!"
"Thanks to The Travel Academy, I was hired by NCL. My experience here has been nothing but beneficial. I'm forever grateful!"
"There are no words to describe The Travel Academy. The Travel Academy taught me a lot more than what I expected. All the staff are like family. It is never too late to start a new career. The Travel Academy is there to make everyone's future brighter. Thank you, TTA!"
"I enjoyed every moment of these past 10 weeks with all of the amazing people I've met. I'd like to thank my instructors for being so patient in teaching us everything we need to know in all of our future careers. "
"Attending The Travel Academy was one of the BEST choices I have ever made in my life! Not only did you learn new things, make great friends from all over the world, and learn from the best teachers, but you also get your dream job! Thankful and blessed to have attended The Travel Academy. "
"The Travel Academy prepared me for the interview process perfectly. I felt comfortable and prepared in nearly every way for the interview and being able to secure my space in training! I met some really wonderful people here and hope to keep them as friends for life. The curriculum here has given me a heads up for initial training and made me feel confident that I will pass with "flying" colors!"
"I am so excited for the opportunity I have had here at The Travel Academy and I am so thankful for TTA, as it has prepared me for a bright future. "
"Overall, it was a great experience here at The Travel Academy...TTA was a great tool!"
"Attending the Travel Academy has truly been a blessing. It was one of the best decisions I had ever made. From the teachers to the friends I have made, along with everything I have learned, it has been an unforgettable 10 weeks!! I know that with out this training and how it prepared me, I would never have landed my dream job with Republic Airways. I am truly thankful to all of you at The Travel Academy!!"
"I had an amazing experience here at The Travel Academy. I made many friends and will take away many memories with me. My teachers were amazing and helped me every step of the way."
"My experience at TTA was very positive! I learned so much in such a short time. My roommates were wonderful, and I believe I have made lifelong friends here. Getting hired was quick but nerve-wracking time. I applied on a Thursday, and was hired over the phone the following Tuesday. I'm beyond excited to start training in Phoenix, and so thankful that coming to TTA made my dreams come true."
"My experience at TTA has been challenging sometimes, but amazing! The instructors were very knowledgeable on the subjects and countries they taught. I gained so much knowledge of cruise lines, travel agencies, and being a flight attendant in such a short time. The instructors are very helpful and will not let you fail. Study what they say and do your homework and yu will pass with flying colors. I learned to love dressing up and meeting new people. I came here, gained knowledge, listened, passed my tests, followed what my instructors instructed me to do, and it led me to getting hired. I love The Travel Academy, and I'm definitely going to be recruiting people back home and all over. "
"My experience and time spent at The Travel Academy was simply the best- lovely teachers, great environment, and i had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world."
"It has been a very good and exciting experience. The teachers are amazing and the office is a really great please to turn to when you need them, especially the head of the school, Mr. Curt Armstrong. He doesn't just stay in his office, he walks the halls and mingles with the students. You really make friends for life here. There's nothing you really regret. I loved this experience. Mr. Jeff is the person you can turn to when it's time to write your professional introduction and Ms. Angie is the first face of The Travel Academy. The instructors are the best and if you listen, you will succeed. I am living proof, at 52 years old and I got four great job offers, all because I listened and put my best foot forward!"
"I had such an amazing experience at TTA. I have learned so much and had so much personal growth. in the last ten weeks. And I know that if it were not for the tools and skills that I have learned at TTA, I would have never received the a flight attendant position with Republic. "
"The Travel Academy experience has been incredible. Are you sitting down? You need to be! If you can dream it, you can do it. Since I was eight years old, I dreamed of being a flight attendant . The Travel Academy helped that dream become a reality. I want to thank Mr. Armstrong and my flight attendant instructor Ms. Deanna, Ms. TJ, Miss Lynn, Ms. Leslie, Ms. Cindy, Ms. Angela, Mr. Michael, Mr. Richard, Mr. Jeff, and Mr. Mark. My classmates have become friends for life- family! So if you want your wish to become a flight attendant, work on a cruise ship, or be a travel agent, call The Travel Academy today."
"With my training at The Travel Academy, I was prepared for my interview with GoJet. I am super excited to start my career. I have met so many great new friends will be forever friends. The teachers at The Travel Academy have been very helpful! Make sure you always know your airport codes! The sky's the limit.Time for some great new adventures with GoJet! Thank you, Ms. Lynn for all your help! "
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been great. I made life long friends and created many beautiful memories. These I will never forget. The instructors were amazing as well as the office staff. My time at the academy was just great!"
"Throughout my experience at TTA, I have grown, matured, and learned a lot. I am very glad that I went to TTA and gained relationships about my new career! I am very proud to say that I couldn't have done it without my teachers and the support from my family!"
"The Travel Academy really gave me the necessary knowledge that allowed me to put my professionalism to use and rock my interview. Republic Airways sent a recruiter, and he made me feel comfortable. I wasn't nervous, and I think I wowed him. Thanks to The Travel Academy, I had an advantage over those who didn't already have prior knowledge of what is expected of flight attendants. I am so happy I came here and had the opportunity to embark on a life-changing journey!"
"I am so thankful for this opportunity that was made available to me here at the Travel Academy. I was able to expand my horizons and meet new people from all over!! I have had a fun experience and made a lot of great memories!"
"Attending The Travel Academy has been one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had. I have met so many amazing people and have made lifetime-worthy friends. I would never have been able to get [a flight attendant career at] Mesa Airlines on my own, and I am forever grateful to each and everyone who has helped me along the way. Coming here has given me a sense of confidence and skills I know I needed to succeed. I know that with the training I received and the push I got from my instructors, I will be the best flight attendant I can be. Thank you so much for everything you have done for me!"
"I have had an amazing time at The Travel Academy. I feel like I am well prepared for a flight attendant job. My teachers are so friendly, helpful, and I am so glad that I have had them help me get my dream job. I have also been able to meet a bunch of amazing people here that I am sure are going to be lifelong friends. Coming to The Travel Academy has by far been one of the best decisions I've made."
"I am so grateful that I got the chance to come to The Travel Academy. I have always wanted to be a flight attendant and have tried for a while with no success. After talking to my friend that graduated from The Travel Academy in November 2014 and hearing how much she recommended this school, I decided to give it a shot. Thanks to The Travel Academy, I have the confidence to go after my dreams and have received several job offers. I'm happy for the chance to work for Republic Airways. With the knowledge that I received from The Travel Academy, I am confident I will pass flight attendant training. "
"While attending The Travel Academy, I've made some lifelong friends and learned everything necessary for the travel industry. The teachers were great and really went the extra mile to make sure we were 100% comfortable with the criteria. I don't think I could have asked for a better group of teachers. It seemed as if they were strict at first, but I came to realize they were only preparing for us for what we were about to step into. It got tough sometimes, but I just reminded myself what was at the end of the tunnel. And here I am with a job three weeks before graduation!"
"I would say that coming to The Travel Academy was the right decision for my career. I came to the USA one year and four months ago to start a new life. Prior to that, I was an entrepreneur. But ever since, I've always wanted to be a flight attendant. Through my dedication, hard work, kindness to myself and my fellow individuals, and the help of my wonderful instructors (especially Ms. Sheila, Ms. Deanna, Ms. Lynn, Ms. Leslie and Ms. TJ), I was prepared to be strong enough and knowledgeable in making my path as flight attendant. Thank you, Travel Academy and more power!"
"I had my interview in Seattle, Washington at the Hilton Airport Hotel. It was a very challenging experience and somewhat scary. My hands and feet were shaking, but I got up there and did my introduction. Everything I've learned at The Travel Academy paid off. The Travel Academy prepared me for this day. It was a wonderful experience."
"This was an amazing experience with a lot of educational benefits. Besides missing home, I have had a chance to grow a lot in every angle. I am a different person from the one I was when I started. The whole staff at The Travel Academy is the most amazing team. My instructors made the long day worthwhile. Mr Armstrong himself is an amazing human being who knows each and every student, and he pays attention . My journey at The Travel Academy has been amazing!"
"When I made the decision to come to TTA, I was unsure of what the experience would be like. However, I feel it was the best decision. I have enjoyed every second in every class. The instructors are extremely helpful. I know that without the knowledge I gained at TTA, I would not have attained my job with SkyWest."
"The Travel Academy was instrumental in my success. All of the knowledge and public speaking practice prepared me for my Omni Air International open house. Miss Lynn worked with me after school for a couple days, and her assistance greatly contributed to me getting hired. Without The Travel Academy, I would have blindly applied for multiple major airlines, and taken any job offer. Instead, now I will be working for a great airline that fits my needs and desires, and I can't wait to get started. Miss TJ, Deanna, Leslie, Sheila, Cindy, and all other personnel helped me during the entire process. Without speaking to Michael on the phone I wouldn't even be here. Miss Kim helped me with the GI Bill and tuition. Miss Steph and Angie helped me with copies and mail. Thanks to Mr. Armstrong for running the school, and thank you Mr. Jeff for taking our pictures for LinkedIn and any and all tech support. Every employee at The Travel Academy contributed to my success in one way or another."
"My TTA experience was wonderful! I met so many amazing people and made the most of my time. Since I got here I know I wanted GoJet; that was my main goal. TTA prepared me for my interview and I was extremely successful with that. I am more than excited to begin my career with GoJet!"
"It's been an amazing experience. I've learned so much about professionalism, customer service, and how to be a flight attendant. Thank you all so much for your support. I love The Travel Academy! "
"Before coming to The Travel Academy, I didn't have any idea about traveling. All I knew is that I would like to be a flight attendant. Attending The Travel Academy was one of the best things that has ever happened in my life. I didn't expect to meet and make great friends. I love my roommates so much, we treated each other as family. The instructors were wonderful - everyone helped us until the end. I thank Ms. Deanna, Ms. Leslie, and Ms. Sheila for everything. As a bilingual student, it was pretty tough for me to understand some of our studies, but with the help of my classmates and the instructors, I was able to get through everything. I was not expecting to receive job offers Republic Airways, GoJet Airlines, and Norwegian Cruise Line. I would like to thank everyone from The Travel Academy for this wonderful experience. I will treasure all the memories that I made here!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been amazing. Since week one through weeks ten, I keep telling myself "Wow, I made such a great decision." The teachers were excellent and I have learned so much in such a short amount of time. I have made lots of great friendships that I know will last a lifetime. Thanks, TTA! "
"Luckily I am in The Travel Academy, and Ms. Cindy emailed Mesa [Airlines]. I got a video interview, and just half an hour later I got a call saying that I got the job! Because of The Travel Academy, I feel prepared and excited for training on June 17th- 10 days after graduation!"
"My experience here at TTA was really awesome! I met so many friends here that hopefully I continue to share memories with. I would love to thank Miss Julie for all the help with résumés and all the skills it takes to get an interview and succeed. I love that The Travel Academy gave me the opportunity to follow my dreams and start my career. So happy for the experience here and the meet all the amazing people that I did!"
"I really can't thank The Travel Academy enough for all the preparation and skills that I have obtained over these past ten weeks! At times it can be overwhelming, but in the end when you hear "you're hired" it all becomes worth it! Thank you, Travel Academy, for all the valuable knowledge."
"My experience at TTA was an eye opener, not just educationally, but personally as well. These past 10 weeks have taught me what I needed to learn for the travel industry, including cruise and, most importantly to me, flight attendant. I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to work for Republic where I hope to hone and practice the skills I learned and gained from TTA. I've also learned to open up and become more confident and social with other students/people and have made friends and created memories that will be with me forever. "
"I don't know where to start, this episode in my life was an amazing experience coming to The Travel Academy. I learned a lot, had fun, participated in multiple activities, and most important was meeting new people from around the world, literally! I am so thankful for the opportunity that TTA has provided to me to become more successful. I can't express how grateful I am."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was beyond incredible. Prior to attending this program, I was slightly nervous due to the fact that I have never been away from my family for such a long period of time. The minute I arrived, everyone was very welcoming and made the environment relaxing. 10 weeks later and I am leaving The Travel Academy beyond prepared to enter the travel industry as a flight attendant. This couldn't have occurred without the awesome training that was provided by my amazing instructors. "
"I am very grateful of my choice to attend TTA! Going through our classes really made me much more confident about going through initial training. The school has also given me the opportunity to make lifelong friends that share the same goals and dreams that I have. Thanks, TTA!"
"I owe it all to Ms. TJ! She sent me the job opening, and within a few weeks, I went through the interview process and got an offer. She helped me find a perfect fit- a great group of travel agents (including another Travel Academy grad), in the community where I grew up. I start right after graduation!"
"I believe that The Travel Academy really prepared me for a career in the travel industry. All the teachers are very nice and really want to help you be successful. I loved meeting all these new people from all over the world and making new friends."
"The Travel Academy has truly been an amazing experience- from the teachers that helped me out every step of the way to the lifelong friends. The teachers support and guide through every interview you need to prepare for. Norwegian Cruise Line hired me and I'm extremely happy for the mentoring that was given to me. Thank you, Travel Academy. This was a blessing."
"My Travel Academy experience has been the best three months of my life. School got hard at times, but it was definitely worth it in the long run. I feel that I am very well prepared for training in the future, both on a plane and on a cruise ship. I made lifelong friends here and I know we will all do great in the future. Also, I'm only 18 years old and was offered three jobs: a flight attendant job, a cruise ship job, and a customer service agent position. Don't ever give up or think you won't find a job if you're 18 because all of your hard work will eventually pay off in the end. "
"The Travel Academy has truly been an amazing experience. I interviewed with Norwegian Cruise Line and it was an awesome experience. I was able to just let my personality out. "
"I had a great experience with TTA. The instructors are great and very helpful for me to achieve my goals and get this job, I am very thankful, for everything I learned is going to help me in my travel career."
"My experience at TTA started off a little difficult but I managed to push through and believe in myself. Overall, my experience turned out amazing and I truly loved and enjoyed every moment. "
"The Travel Academy has prepared me for what to expect when working on a cruise line. Thanks to The Travel Academy for helping me get a job with NCL. I look forward to my many adventures on board the Pride of America."
"Words can't express my appreciate for The Travel Academy. I have learned so much about myself and about the industry I know I'm meant to be a part of. Thank you TTA!"
"My experience here at The Travel Academy was great! I always had in my mind that I wanted to be a flight attendant because I love to travel and I have never been on a plane before so why not kill two birds with one stone, right? When I got here i was ready to learn everything about flight attendants, what to do on a plane, how to serve passengers, etc. I received all of that, plus more. I didn't know I would have more than one class so learning about different cruise ships and how to book other people's vacations was awesome to learn. Somehow down the line, Leslie changed my mind from being on a plane to being on a ship. Being on a ship, I thought, would be great because there is so much diversity and I love water as well. When I found out everything is paid for and all I had to do was do my job, be good at it, and make other people happy, I said that it would be no problem. Researching information about Norwegian made me want to work for them even more. I found their ships to be the most beautiful things I've ever seen and I had to join one! They came to TTA to take a few of us to be a part of their family and I was very excited to have my interview. When my turn came to speak with the recruiter, I was myself, answering all of the questions like we practiced and a week later I was offered a position t be a part of the family. It was one of the best days of my life. "
"I was hired at the TTA open house! NCL was my first choice since day one and I couldn't have asked for a better time! I loved every day of school, my teachers, and my classmates. Best decision of my life. "
"During my time at The Travel Academy I learned so many new things about the travel industry. I made so many great friends throughout these ten weeks. The Travel Academy also helped me build up my confidence levels for interviews. I'm so excited to start my career at NCL. "
"The decision to come to The Travel Academy was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've made so many friends and learned so many new things. And I got the job I wanted! "
"The Travel Academy has helped me every step of the way. I wouldn't be able to be where I am without it. I've made so many great friends and I'm very happy to have come here. Thank you TTA! "
"I had a great experience at The Travel Academy. I met so many cool people from all over the world! I have learned a lot of skills and knowledge of the travel industry that will help me with my career. "
"So the past two weeks have been the greatest days of my life, and dreams do come true! I had a successful interview with United Airlines today, and I was hired as a flight attendant. It has been my dream for many years and finally I was able to make it happen. Thank you, The Travel Academy, for teaching me the valuable skills needed to be successful! I'll be heading to Houston Texas in April for the training! Super happy!"
"It's not where you came from- its where you’re going! The Travel Academy has been nothing short of amazing, and you can tell they genuinely care about your future!
"I'm happy I was able to recommend my sister, Samantha and cousin, Jazmin, to The Travel Academy! They seem to be loving it there and are excited about their future travel careers. As for me I'm at Compass Airlines. I was hired in April 2014, so I've been there for 2 years now and loving it! I can't thank you [TTA} enough for assisting me in starting this career. Hope all is well!"
"If I hadn't attended The Travel Academy, I would not be in this stage in my life. So thank you to all the staff at TTA!"
"Ten weeks ago I found myself both excited and apprehensive to be making my way to Minnesota to attend The Travel Academy. Little did I know it would be one of the greatest experiences of my life. I am so blessed to have been a part of the January 2016 class, and I wish you all the best of everything. Cheers to the nights that turned into mornings and the friends that turned into family. I love you all more than you could imagine. Thank you for being part of my life, and I will cherish the memories forever."

"My experience at The Travel Academy was one of a kind. I not only learned valuable information for the travel industry, I grew tremendously as a professional individual. The instructors here are so eager to help, which made the learning experience great! I have met so many amazing people, and while I am excited to move on with the great career as a flight attendant, I will greatly miss the many friends I have made. I wouldn't trade the past ten weeks for anything!"
"I have had and amazing experience at The Travel Academy. The teachers are wonderful and I have made friends that will last a lifetime. "
"I can proudly say that what I learned here at The Travel Academy helped me not only get the job, but put me above some other candidates. I had interviewed to become a travel agent, and I received an offer to become an Airfare Expert because of my Sabre and airport code knowledge. This school really is something special. You will learn so much in just a few short weeks. Not only that, it will transform you professionally. You'll find confidence you never knew you had. You'll also make some lifelong friends in the process. If you're on the fence about coming here, let me offer some advice: ATTEND THE TRAVEL ACADEMY!"
"In 10 short weeks here, The Travel Academy has provided me with so much knowledge and so many tools to be successful in the travel industry. There's so much I learned that I will use with future careers! I'll miss everybody very much and I look forward to beginning my career right here as an admissions representative at The Travel Academy! Thanks for all of the opportunities!
"TTA was an amazing experience. They taught me everything I needed to know to successfully go through the application and interview process. TTA is a very professional and a friendly environment. "
"My experience at The Travel Academy was amazing! Not only did I meet lifelong friends, I also gained the experience of a lifetime! I am so grateful for The Travel Academy and the instructors who taught me more than I ever thought I would learn about the travel industry. I have grown so much as a person being here, and now I have the confidence to be a fantastic, successful Flight Attendant! A big thank you goes to the instructors for being so encouraging!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been AMAZING, and if it weren't for the hardworking staff, I wouldn't have been able to receive two job offers. I've also met some really good people here that am proud to call friends which are more like family now, and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. "
"Coming from a small town in Pennsylvania, I jumped back and forth with what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I loved to travel, but didn't know how to get started until I heard about The Travel Academy. The teachers were excellent and taught me everything I needed to know about the travel industry. I met a lot of people from different countries and made lifelong friendships. Coming to The Travel Academy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. "
"I heard about The Travel Academy from my dad, a pilot for JetBlue Airways, and he asked me if I wanted to go to school in Minnesota so I can acquire the skills, experience, and learning new interview tricks in order to be hired as a flight attendant. After a couple of turned down offers, I finally got an offer from GoJet Airlines thanks to the skills I learned from the The Travel Academy. After interviewing with many other airlines for two years before coming to this school, I finally achieved the job of my dreams. If it wasn't for The Travel Academy, I wouldn't have made it this far. I am now a flight attendant trainee for GoJet Airlines and I can't wait to start my very first day of training."
"I'm very happy that I learned so much at The Travel Academy. Before I had no experience in the travel industry, but now I know a lot about travel industry!"
"The Travel Academy has definitely prepared me for flight attendant training, and I couldn't thank the instructors enough, they really make sure you understand what is being taught. If I had not attended The Travel Academy I wouldn't have the confidence or knowledge to succeed as a flight attendant. "
"First and foremost, I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to have attended this wonderful institution, to receive the proper training for my ongoing career as a Flight Attendant. The instructors and staff are willing to help you with anything educationally, and professionally, to succeed in your dream careers. This was all a dream before coming here. Believe it or not, your dreams will come true while attending The Travel Academy. Hard work, and dedication to your school work, work ethic, and professional standards is all it took to be a successful student while attending here. I recommend this institution for anyone who is willing to take on their dreams and fulfill them all in just 10 weeks! I will miss everyone, and I will never forget what I gained mentally, physically, socially, and -most importantly- professionally. "
"The staff has been nothing short of amazing, and you can tell they genuinely care about our future! "
"In the beginning, 10 weeks seemed like an eternity, especially not knowing anyone or what to expect. But in half the time, I have gained not only the knowledge needed for my future career, but also friendships I never thought I would have found here. The instructors show that they truly care for each student and want nothing less than success for each one of us."
"The Travel Academy has done an excellent job to prepare me for a travel career. I not only learned about safety, customer service, and geography, but also how to enter the professional world. The teachers and staff do truly care about our success"
"10 weeks. That’s all it took.
On my way here to Minnesota on the airplane, I had no idea I would’ve met so many people I would ever call my family. Heck, I strictly brought business clothes because I thought I wasn’t going to have a social life. But no! I got the exact opposite. I ended up making friends from all over the world. No, not friends- FAMILY! I gained a whole new family here at The Travel Academy. A family I have had countless laughs with and made abundant memories with. And I’m not just talking about the students. I especially mean the teachers and staff as well. The teachers and staff have been there every step of the way- from Miss Cindy’s kindness quotes to helping us choose the right job for us when we had job offers line up.
I’ll cut it short and end it with a quote hanging in Miss Lynn’s class room that I fell in love with. I will always return to The Travel Academy when I have a layover in Minneapolis during my endeavors all over the world with Omni Air International, for this is where my journey began as an aspiring flight attendant. 'Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return.'
"I like the quote from Angel Messenger that says, 'Do what you do best; direct your thoughts at an impossible goal and then defy all odds by taking the remarkable road to reach your destination.' Much mahalo and aloha to all my instructors."
"Coming to The Travel Academy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. After retiring from the Air Force, it was time to find a new career, and I'm finally at a place in my life that I have the freedom to pursue my lifelong dream of being a flight attendant. I had to work really hard and started to lose confidence in myself and doubted I would get the job of my dreams. I met the most amazing people while I was here, and we all pulled each other up and kept each other going. These ten weeks have been life-changing for me. Not only did I get a job offer from GoJet, I also got the base that I wanted! I will never forget the friendships and the amazing memories made while I was here!"
"My experience here at The Travel Academy was great. I will be sad to leave everyone but very happy to leave here with a job and seeing my family again."
"I always wanted a career in travel, but I never thought it would be possible - until I joined The Travel Academy. It has been one of the best decisions of my life. Everything the instructors and and staff do is to help you become the most successful person in the travel industry. I am truly grateful for everyone. They taught me everything needed to be a successful, professional, and grateful flight attendant. They show you the path to success. You just have to take the steps, and because of them I'm running down that road. Thank you, Travel Academy. I owe my career to your dedicated staff and instructors. "
"Deciding to attend The Travel Academy has by far been a blessing and the greatest decision for for my future flight attendant career. Now it's time to spread my wings and fly!"
"I have enjoyed everything that I have learned here. I am excited for the jobs I am going to attain from the knowledge I have gained at The Travel Academy."
"Attending The Travel Academy has been a great experience. I learned so much in only ten weeks. And I am very excited to start my new career as a flight attendant!"
"I had a great experience at The Travel Academy. The trainers helped me create résumés, cover letters, practice open house interview questions, had me come in dressed in our business suits for professional image checks to ensure we were fully prepared to interview with the airlines. One of the best things about The Travel Academy is that they have lifetime placement assistance. We also got hands-on experience at a flight attendant training facility where we got to go inside an actual aircraft , jump down the slide, learn how to operate the doors, and got hands-on training with the emergency equipment. I thought it was really a helpful experience."
"I've enjoyed my experience here at The Travel Academy so much. I've learned everything I need to be a successful travel professional, and it has also given me a lot more confidence. The instructors have been so amazing and helpful."
"The Travel Academy has been a wonderful and life changing time for myself. The past ten weeks I have met many new people that I have become very close too. Knowing we will see each other in the greatest industry there is makes me smile and feel confident that I chose the right career. The Academy gave me the opportunity to return to the airlines and has helped me expand my knowledge and learn the most current procedures for travel agencies, airlines, and cruise ships. I am excited to have been offered a position on American Cruise Lines and a wonderful possibility to work for Envoy Airlines. There is not a doubt that I would definitely recommend this wonderful experience to anyone who has the drive, ambition, and dream to work in the travel industry. "
"This has truly been a wonderful experience! I have met some amazing people from my roommates, classmates, to my instructors. Through the training I have received here I have obtained a flight attendant career with GoJet Airlines- as well as knowledge, training, and experience for almost any career in the travel and tourism industry. I will always be thankful and will honestly miss everyone and everything at TTA! Thank you!"
"I am not the same person I was when I started The Travel Academy ten weeks ago. The friendships I have made here and the skills I have learned have forever changed me. Spending ten years as a stay-at-home mom and wife, I forgot I was more than just someone's mom or wife. My time here has given me a new-found confidence, but more importantly has helped me rediscover the type of person I want to be. It's a wonderful feeling remembering that I am an individual with a lot to offer. Going forward, I now I will have a successful career in the travel industry and that I will make many more friendships. The future looks bright, but it will never outshine my time here. The friendships I have made with my classmates and instructors have taught me more than just skills needed to succeed in the industry. They have given me the skills to succeed in life. "
"The teachers were very helpful. They were always willing to answer any questions you have. They push you to be the best you can. All the employees were amazing. I am so thankful for the experience at The Travel Academy."
"I came here not knowing what was ahead of me and not knowing anyone. As the weeks went on I learned so much and met so many amazing people that I can now call great friends. It's unreal. Not only am I prepared for my upcoming career, I'm going into it with people who are here to support me because they are sharing this dream with me. Thank you, Travel Academy, for widening my horizon and bringing so many new people into my life. "
"I have definitely had a unique experience at The Travel Academy. I have learned so many things that will carry with me for the rest of my life. I feel I have everything I need to be a successful flight attendant, thanks to Ms. Lynn. I hope future students are just as successful or more."
"Thank you, Travel Academy, for teaching me and giving all the knowledge I need for this industry. I am glad I came here! "
"I had a wonderful time at The Travel Academy! Not only did I make memories here that will last me a lifetime, but I also gained all the knowledge I need about the travel industry. I am so happy to have gotten the opportunity to interview with so many airlines, and I am excited to now start my career as a flight attendant with Trans States Airlines. Thank you, TTA!"
"My time at The Travel Academy has been very memorable. I got the chance to meet so many lifelong friends and learn about the travel industry that I will cherish."
"When I applied to attend The Travel Academy, I had every intention of becoming a flight attendant. With the knowledge I have gained from Miss Cindy's class I was able to switch gears. Now I will be working on a cruise ship off the coast of Hawaii. Next to that I have had a great opportunity to meet so many people whom I will never forget. "
"Before attending The Travel Academy, I went in with very minimal knowledge of the travel industry. Approaching graduation I feel as if I'm ready to take on the world. The teachers and staff have all been so great to me and have taught me so much. I have made so many friends here that I know will last a lifetime. I wish my classmates all the best. Thank you, TTA, for making my dreams become reality."
"It was great! Thank you, everyone- especially the school staff!"
"Coming to The Travel Academy was definitely a great decision. Here I learned more about the travel industry than I even anticipated. When I arrived, I had plans to pursue a career as a flight attendant, but after Miss Cindy's class in cruise I changed my mind quickly. Who could pass up the opportunity to sail around Hawaii? This school is definitely awesome in the aspect of learning things about yourself and also making lifelong friends. Miss TJ has been so positive with job placement, arranging open houses, and the paperwork to go along with the job you accept. Thank you, Travel Academy."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been amazing overall. I knew I had to go big or go home. Choosing The Travel Academy has opened my eyes to go big, with all the many opportunities in the travel industry, there was no looking back. Getting hired in the seventh week of training with Trans States Airlines was an awesome feeling. Thanks to the instructors and the teamwork, I will be starting my dream career sooner than ever. Thank you so much! "
"When I first came here I was just excited to be in another state. I didn't know what to expect, who I would meet, who I was rooming with, anything! Then the first week went by and I loved it. I made new friends and experienced new things. Some things that I really loved were the inspirational speeches from Curt, Cindy and TJ. I wish people back home could hear them.
The teachers here are all amazing. They go through everything we need to know step by step. Not only are the teachers academic, but they have awesome personalities- making learning more fun. Before I wasn't serious at all being in the school because I wasn't sure if this is what I really wanted to do. Then I had a talk with with Curt and Cindy, and they gave me the push I needed. I can't stress how hard TJ works to make sure everyone is up to date on everything that is going on. She is truly a gift to this school.
I highly recommend this school to anyone thinking about joining the travel industry. I know I'll have an advantage going into training. I thank The Travel Academy so much for all of their hard work. Anyone coming here will be 100% satisfied. These people really do work with you before and after you're hired. I also can't forget about [admissions representative] Michael. He's so amazing- always full of energy and willing to help someone with no problems. He's the main reason I was so excited to be in this school."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been more than amazing. It all started when I saw my friend from high school posting pictures on Facebook and it looked like she was having the time of her life. I asked her where she went to school and she showed me The Travel Academy. I'm more than grateful because I wasn't sure where I was going in my life. Ever since the first day of school I wouldn't change a thing. I love all my teachers and everything they teach me. My roommates will be my lifelong friends. Having the opportunity to become a flight attendant will make my dreams come true."
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been a great journey. Being an older student, I was unsure if I could make it through, but I have surprised even my expectations. These ten weeks have gone very quickly, and I have gained so much knowledge about the travel industry. I feel very prepared for my next big steps."
"It was an awesome experience. I can't ask for more. I had an amazing time with everyone. I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn with my classmates and graduate. I love all of my teachers and you have a wonderful management team."
"After having a job that I worked from home, I started to feel shut in and knew I had to find something to get me out and away from home. So I started doing searches for flight attendant schools, and The Travel Academy kept coming up. So I then started checking out their website and filled out the forms- not thinking I would get in. Within a day I was receiving calls from The Travel Academy. They answered all my questions, and that's when I knew this was the ticket for me. I got so excited to come and fulfill a lifelong dream. So here I am with two offers and one more interview- and some major decisions to make. I would highly recommend The Travel Academy to everyone. My experience here has been life-changing for the better. I can';t wait to come back and show off my wings some day."
"Without the Travel Academy, I would not have been successful. I stared out wanting to be a flight attendant, but as time went on, I changed career paths. With the wonderful help of Cindy and TJ, I was hired with Norwegian Cruise Line. Cindy is a wonderful instructor and I promise you, you will learn so much! She truly cares for each and every student. She wants you to succeed. TJ gives her undivided attention and helps tremendously to get you hired. The Travel Academy will always be a part of my family! I love each and every instructor! "
"May I first start off with thank you for the experience here at The Travel Academy. Coming here was hard at first because of the fact that I have never been away from home for a long period of time, but a lot of the people and all of the instructors here have really made me feel special and a part of The Travel Academy family. Leaving here will be tough because of the bonds that I have formed with everyone here, but that doesn't mean I will lose touch. I will make sure to keep everyone informed and send everyone pictures of my experience on American Cruise Lines. Thank you again for this wonderful experience, and I will definitely make sure to tell everyone I know about the school."
"The experience at The Travel Academy has been one of the best in my life. This school is an amazing gateway to the airline and travel industry. Everything that I have learned here is so key to my desired career, and I cant believe all gotten to learn within eight weeks. I immediately knew I wanted to become a flight attendant, and with the help of my instructors, hard work, and determination, that dream is quickly becoming a reality."
"During my time at the Travel academy, I learned a lot of things. I learned not be be afraid to fail and not to be a failure. All of my instructors showed me how to be a professional in life. I really appreciate the way they valued the students. At the beginning, I was wondering if I would make it, how ever without my teachers and my determination, I would not have been able to make my dreams come true. I would not trade my experience for anything! It was awesome!"
"I was most attracted to the 10-week [300-Hour Expanded] program The Travel Academy offered. The experience has been awesome. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Thank you!"
"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! "
"When I arrived at the Travel Academy's housing, two of my roommates were already there. We immediately became friends and I have met so many amazing people here at the academy. TTA has successfully prepared me to leave home and start my own journey and for that, I am very thankful."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was fantastic! I made so many friends and learned so much about the travel industry."
"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. "
"I am so thankful for The Travel Academy. I've learned so much. Right now I feel prepared mentally and physically. I'm also grateful to have met my teachers and fellow students. They're all nice and supportive. I have so much fun in class. The teachers always teach interesting subjects. Thank you! I heart The Travel Academy! And always remember to be a professional 100% of the time."
"My experience with The Travel Academy has been amazing. 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 couldn't be happier with my decision to come here. Best decision I've ever made. Thank you, Travel Academy. You've changed my life for the better!"
"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!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy has been awesome. Words cannot describe how I feel. You get to meet people from all over the world that you would have never thought you would meet. You get to become a really close family with your classmates. The instructors are beyond awesome. They will help you prepare for the future by teaching you what you will need to learn for the real world. I got hired by Trans States Airlines in my fifth week. It was beyond a blessing. I couldn't have done it without The Travel Academy."
"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!"
"I would first like to start off by thanking all my teachers for their amazing help. They prepared me in every way possible to be able to achieve this position. The Travel Academy has been one of the greatest experiences of my life! I am very excited and nervous about my new job with Trans States Airlines, but I am sure I will do fine- thanks to everyone here. Also The Travel Academy has made me grow in so many ways and given me the opportunity to experience tons of different cultures. If I could change one thing, it would be to have started sooner! "
"Coming to The Travel Academy is easily one of the best choices I've ever made. I've learned so many essentials for the travel industry and created friendships that'll last a lifetime! This experience has been one of the best in my life and is just the opening door to my future in the travel industry!"

Thank you, Travel Academy team. I am proud and honored to have attended your prestigious academy. "
"My dream job was to become a flight attendant ever since I turned 18. I tried to apply for any airline that was hiring and never succeeded. I tried an online course to become a flight attendant with no results until last year. I found this school with a Google search. I was financially struggling so I did not apply. I talked to my parents and they said they would help me, so I was then able to enroll. It was the best decision I could have ever made. TTA helped me with everything to reach my dream goal. Thank you so much!"
"My experience has been wonderful. My roommates were the best roommates I could have ever received. The school was also amazing. The teachers really care about helping you to get hired. I was hired half way through the program. The teachers are awesome and I also make life long friends."
"I'm enjoying the confidence [The Travel Academy] gave me. I'm really loving what I do, and the the pay is nice! I have never thought that I had these amazing skills until I did what you told me to do. Thank you!"

I am very excited that the Travel Academy gave me an opportunity to get a job with Norwegian Cruise Lines and how well they prepared me for the interviews."
"The Travel Academy has been an awesome experience for me. I don't think I would have been able to achieve my goals if it wasn't for this school. I admit I was a little bit discouraged at first, but everyone did their jobs and were able to find us positions. I truly appreciate everything that the academy has done for me and something I will never forget."
"This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made- coming to the USA and achieving something that has always been my passion. Coming from Africa can take a great toll on you- being in a totally new place where people do things differently, but I am glad these great people opened their door to me and let me in. We all come from different walks of life, and this is a place where not only your dreams come true, but you leave with lifetime friendships with classmates and instructors. Thank you, Travel Academy, for making this happen. We will all continue to flourish and telling our stories to the world. GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!! :-)"

"I absolutely loved my time here at the Travel Academy, from the instructors to the office staff. I loved the curriculum. I have learned so much since coming here and I so lucky that I attended.I am going to miss everyone to the moon and back.
"This was the best experience and life decision I have ever chosen. I met a lot of unforgettable friends. I woke up everyday with the intention of going to school to learn and how to become a professional. I enjoyed every class I took.The instructors made the experience much more entertaining. I was offered three positions before graduation. I have recommended this school to a lot of people because this is a huge stepping stone. After two years of deciding, I finally go the courage to enroll at The Travel Academy. Best thing I ever did."
"I came to the Travel Academy to be a flight attendant. I found the opportunity with American Cruise Line that I didn't even know existed. Thank you Travel Academy for helping me find my dream job. With out you, I would have never been given this opportunity.
"I would define this experience as unforgettable. It will always be a part of me no matter where my journey takes me. Coming to the academy taught me to be an independent, professional individual. It improved and boosted my confidence. Throughout the 10 weeks I learned more about myself and grew up as an individual in professional environment at the Travel Academy. I will always remember my TTA family, classmates and friends who have become part of my life. Thank you so much. Until we meet again!!"

Thank you TTA for this opportunity and thank you for opening this school!!"
"My experience at the academy was amazing! The instructors are very helpful and want you to succeed in getting hired. You meet people from around the world and everyone is so friendly. Without the help of The Travel Academy staff, I would have never bee able to succeed with interviewing for the airline companies."
"I really took a leap of faith with making a whole new career change. I met some really great instructors and students. I was away from home for 10 weeks. This was the longest I have been away from my home and family. I really enjoyed the school and having the experience of living with roommates."
"The Travel Academy was so important in helping me to decide what I wanted to do with my future. I am beyond blessed and happy with my career choice. Thank you TTA! It was hard work, but worth it."
"I had a wonderful experience here at The Travel Academy. At first I was a little worried about learning and getting my questions answered, but I did. Thank you for this wonderful experience and I know I will be the best flight attendant!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy was so great. I really loved it!! I learned a lot about the travel industry. I also made such wonderful and great friends from all over the world. When I cam here, I didn't know that one day I would be successful. Thanks to the Travel Academy and my instructors for being there for me. "
"I came here expecting to go to school for 2 and a half months and keep to myself. Instead I fell in love with everyone and everything here. I never thought I would say that I found myself in.... Eagan, Minnesota!"
"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.
"My overall experience was great!! The teachers and staff are extremely helpful and friendly. They prepar yo with the knowledge and understanding you need to make it in the travel industry and I am very grateful! I cannot wait to get back to everyone at the academy with my experiences in Hawaii, they definitely will be hearing from me!"
"Coming to The Travel Academy 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!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy was amazing, and this place has turned me from a boy to a professional. I love this place, and if I could tell anyone good advice, I would tell them that The Travel Academy will lead them to positive results."
"Coming to The Travel Academy was a bit scary, but I do not regret a thing! I have met people that I will love forever. The instructors were great. I have learned so much that I did not know before and am thankful. The experience was worth it. It helps you find yourself deeply. Thank you to all the Travel Academy staff for such an awesome adventure. I will truly miss you all."
"My experience at The Travel Academy was great! The well-educated instructors and hands-on training helped me get a job with Norwegian Cruise Line. THANK YOU!"
"Coming to The Travel Academy was amazing. I met wonderful people that I'll never forget. I love the diversity at The Travel Academy and the awesome instructors we have"
"I believe that you aren't able to grow as a person if you do the same thing everyday. Challenge yourself and try something new everyday. The Travel Academy definitely challenges you a different way everyday. As a result we have all realized how much more we have to offer the world and the courage to overcome our fears. We have successfully scared the crap out of ourselves every day and become better people for it!"
"I just wanted to inform you that I got my wings. I couldn't have done it without The Travel Academy & all the support I had from the instructors. God bless The Travel Academy!"
"My experience at The Travel Academy was great! I met so many different people that were just like me. I found my dream job. I have no regrets. My roommates were just like me. Great placement."
"I attended TTA in June 2014 and I had the best experience ever. I made lifelong friends whom I still associate with, the instructors were awesome, and I learned a lot. I couldn't have asked for better instructors. Without TTA, I wouldn't be where I am right now, hired as a flight attendant for Republic Airways! Thank you, TTA!"
"The Travel Academy was the introduction to my career: A passion with safety and service in the sky. Come fly!"
"[Coming to The Travel Academy] 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."
"The Travel Academy was a breath of fresh air! My instructors were so helpful when it came to learning new material. I came into this program 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!
"My experience at The Travel Academy was amazing- awesome staff and instructors. If it weren't for The Travel Academy, I don't think it would have been this easy to interview and answer questions correctly. I've always been a mature and well-rounded human being, but The Travel Academy helped me stay more focused and be more professional. Also, I learned so much more than I was expecting- and then some! I love to learn. Geography is my strong suit, and I'm glad TTA gave me the opportunity to refresh my memory and shine!"
"Thank you for hosting me at the Travel Academy today on behalf of American Cruise Lines. ACL holds your facility in very high esteem, and it’s easy to see why.
You have assembled a fantastic staff that was more than willing to accommodate any request I had. The students at your facility are certainly receiving a high quality education that is sure to help them in the years to come. Needless to say, I came away extremely impressed"
"I just want to thank you and the rest of the staff for helping me to make my dream come true. Coming to TTA is one of the best decisions I've made. I wouldn't be where I am right now if it wasn't for you, TJ. I leave for Dubai to attend flight attendant training for Emirates on April 9th. Again, thank you so much, TJ and, God bless you for what you do!"
