The American Academy Delivers Alternatives to Rural Nevada Students

September 4, 2007 - The American Academy Delivers Alternatives to Rural Nevada Students

(Salt Lake City, UT) – The American Academy announced today that it has signed a two-year agreement with Lund High School to deliver online courses to students.

Lund Jr./Sr. High School, located in central Nevada, serves 67 students in grades 7-12. "Because of our rural location, small staff, and limited scheduling options, offering a variety of elective courses to our students is a challenge. The American Academy has helped us fill this gap by providing appealing curriculum options for our students," says Hedges. With only four full-time teachers in the entire school, students have access to less than 30 courses each year. Through his agreement with The American Academy, Lund HS Principal Alan Hedges has more than doubled the number of courses he can offer to his students.

This year, students who have taken him up on his offer have opted for electives, including advanced computer programming and business courses, as well as the occasional credit-recovery course. This two-year online program is funded by a grant from the Nevada Department of Education.
