r At the time of this photo, it is the end of April and these nine students from American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork have earned their associate’s degree from Utah Valley University. They don’t receive their high school diplomas for another month.

How can this happen? Well, it starts once they become freshmen and sophomores. They begin attending a distance learning class called Ed Net. In an agreement with Utah Valley University, high school students can sit in a classroom in Spanish Fork and interact with an actual college class taking place live on the campus in Orem. They see their professor in his classroom on the big screen and they can ask him questions and he can give them answers.

The tuition and the testing fees are a fraction of what a traditional student pays. ALA also offers concurrent enrollment classes that are cashed in for college credit. In the end, they enter the college or university of their choice with an associate’s degree and a two-year head start on everyone else. Congratulations double graduates!
