Darrel Hammon, Senior Director of Community College Programs at UVU, announced last week just how much Concurrent Enrollment students saved over the 2013-2014 school year. By taking concurrent enrollment classes during high school, students saved 8.2 million dollars in college tuition costs. What a savings, what an opportunity! At $5 per credit hour, concurrent enrollment (college credit earned while in high school) courses save each student hundreds of dollars in college tuition.

It's that time when classes are changing and students have the opportunity to receive college credit while taking classes here at ALC. Students enrolled in the ALC classes listed below can be concurrently enrolled (Concurrent Enrollment-CE) in these high school classes and UVU and thus receive college credit while receiving high school credit. This opportunity saves families hundreds of dollars in tuition.

Five members of ALC's administration, faculty, and staff attended vital accreditation training in Salt Lake City this week. The Advanced Learning Center is in the process of becoming accredited with an initial review having been completed last fall. The ALC is now a "Candidate for Accreditation". We are now in the throes of collecting data to provide evidence for our evaluations. We look forward to becoming fully accredited as it will allow us to more fully serve a greater number of students living within the Nebo District.

ALC teachers attended a 3-day training last week on how to incorporate projects into their lesson plans. Project Based Learning proposes giving students a project with a probelm to be solved. The projects also should involve the learning of required subject curriculum. We are so grateful to our teachers who go above and beyond to provide creative learning opportunities for our students.
