9 Months Out of High School and Halfway through Her College Degree!

She graduated from high school just 9 months ago. She would say she is a normal 19 year old--a decent student, who loves her friends and family, and goes to the beach or the mountains of California whenever she gets the chance! So what's so special about this girl? Well, while her peers are wrapping up their Freshman year away at school, Randi has completed her Freshman, Sophomore AND half of her Junior year in college!

Those who know Randi have probably seen our little rocket-bearing turtle zipping all over Facebook almost weekly to congratulate her on knocking out college credit after college credit. She has been a great example of what the Accelerate University program can really do for college students who are willing to work hard to complete their fully accredited bachelor's degree in a fraction of the time for a fraction of the cost. So, we want to give you an opportunity to hear from a student inside our program who is proving this seemingly to-good-to-be-true idea really is an achievable goal.

Want Your Kids to Succeed? Don't Pay for Their Education

This is the title of a Forbes article written to parents earlier this year. A national study, cited by a Sociology professor at the University of California, has found that the more financial responsibility parents take off their kids' shoulders for their college degree, the less their kids tend to study and the more they tend to take it easy. While this concept may be counter-cultural to the advice most loving parents work hard to follow, Forbes is simply uncovering what we at Excellence In Learning have known for quite some time and have intentionally built into our Accelerate University program.

Two-thirds of U.S. Adults Deem a College Degree Very Important

...and at Excellence In Learning, we agree completely! However, we don't think it's necessary to over-pay or waste time to do it. What they can do for $75K+ and 5+ years, we can show you how to do for less than $15K and 2 years!

Is College A Rip Off?

ABC 20/20 investigation with John Stossel takes a look at whether or not college is worth the time and money, or if it's really nothing more than another elaborate scam to get people into debt while creating the false hope of a better job and life.
