I absolutely LOVED that I could learn at my own pace and even ‘challenge’ courses. This flexibility enabled me to graduate three months ahead of schedule!
Thank you to the entire teaching staff at Academy of Learning College because of you I believe I can realize my dream.
Academy of Learning College really appealed to me due to the scheduling flexibility. Being on my own, I needed to work full time as I studied.
