Quick Facts

Nationally Recognized Program Achievement

The only program in Alabama to achieve national recognition from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) by successfully completing their SPA Program with National Recognition in 2018.

logoSince the vast array of computer-based technologies has fundamentally enhanced the ability of companies and schools to connect with students, employees, and customers, eLearning options make the design of web-based instruction increasingly important. In Alabama, for instance, secondary students are required to have experience with online course components before graduation. Also, distance learning options are steadily increasing through Alabama ACCESS for distance learning and because of legislation that requires each school system to have a virtual academy.
