I would like to make a shout out to Dawn Shields. She’s the virtual teacher. We just met her a week ago and let me tell you that she’s very caring, very happy and cares a lot about her students. She has gone above and beyond for our son Ryan. She helps in any way she can. We can tell she truly enjoys her job and her students. Thanks so much

The Classes offered in the Academy allowed me to make an easier transition from high school classes to college courses. I could also try some of the course work offered for my perspective degree. There is something here for everyone to benefit from.
