Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
Global Personalized Academics (GPA) has expanded business beyond its Pennsylvania roots to include new customers in eight additional states.
While business inside Pennsylvania is starting to recover after last year’s budget crisis, GPA remains committed to diversifying its business and bringing new opportunities to students across the United States and the world. The GPA sales team has been working closely with districts over the last few months and recently signed new contracts with schools in Alabama, New Jersey, Vermont, Texas, Tennessee, California, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. They have increased Academy enrollments by 48% and are currently enrolling students in an expanded summer school program.
“We weren't looking for a vendor,” said Dr. Chris M. Smallen, Chief Technology Officer, Lenoir City Schools. “We were looking for a partner and that's exactly what we got from GPA.”
“We’re excited by the impact we’re having on students, especially those in small and rural districts,” stated Julie Young, GPA CEO. “Thanks to our great partners in online and blended learning, students across the U.S will return to school in the fall and face a host of new learning opportunities.”
GPA is also seeing sales traction in its international business with new distribution partners in Ghana, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and China. Expansion of the reseller network is helping to build a foundation for strong future growth internationally.
“We are dedicated to providing students with a quality education, no matter where they come from,” remarked Young. “Online learning can be a great equalizer in many parts of the world and we’re continuing to pursue that dream.”
The GPA team has also been busy improving their product line over the last eleven months. The curriculum team has upgraded all 250 online courses, including creating 56 new credit recovery courses and adding over 1,500 new teaching videos this year.
