At Cincinnati Digital Academy (CDA), we are so much more than an online school — we are a learning community. We have assembled a highly skilled team of educators that excels at meeting the diverse needs of our students. Many of our staff members have been with CDA from its start! No matter their backgrounds or years of experience, all of our teachers share one driving passion: To help our students chart a course for their future. Learn what our teachers and support staff have to say about our school and why they are inspired to help our students succeed — and thrive.
