Rock Rapids, IA (PRWEB) August 8, 2007
Alpha Omega Publications®, a Christian publishing company, proudly announces its partnership with Liberty University in creating the new Liberty University Online Academy. Liberty University was founded by the late Dr. Jerry Falwell, a well-known evangelical Christian pastor and televangelist.
Alpha Omega Publications will provide Liberty University Online Academy with its award-winning curriculum Switched-On Schoolhouse®, a computer-based, multi-media enriched curriculum that covers five core subjects and a variety of electives. The development of the academy and the cutting-edge curriculum it will carry clearly represents the accelerated growth of online education.
Beth Te Grotenhuis, president and CEO of Alpha Omega Publications, said the online learning component of her company has evolved rapidly and the number of students participating has increased tremendously. "We find that a lot of families like the younger students to be online," Te Grotenhuis said. "Computers are like breathing to them."
Ron Godwin, Liberty University executive vice president, said he is excited and optimistic about the new pursuit. "We understand in this day and age that only a small percentage of students can come to us. A far larger percentage can be reached if we go to them," Godwin said. "We intend to provide Christian education, fully accredited, to students across all 50 states and the world." Courses will start in September and registration begins Aug. 1. Godwin said the academy, for grades 3-12, is a natural extension of Liberty University's distance-learning program, which has 19,000 students.
