Our classes offer rigorous university level instruction.
As a licensed and accredited college, we developed a full complement of classes designed to meet the requirements for the Master of Arts degree and the major requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree. In our new incarnation, having given up the accreditation for reasons explained on our History page, we are able to offer these valuable classes at a much lower cost.
Our classes are open to all regardless of enrollment in a program.
