Welcome to American Language Academy® Sky Campus™.
Sky Campus is American Language Academy’s (ALA) online division that specializes in delivering our English language programs and courses via our real-time, interactive online platform.
Sky Campus online provides the same quality of learning and instruction as found in our on- campus programs. Online students receive the same program certificates, are taught by the same instructors, and have access to services and pathways that our on-campus students do.
Instruction is delivered via synchronous, interactive distance learning, using an online platform combined with the Moodle Learning Management System. This method of instruction allows for students all over the world to join our online classrooms and have real-time instruction and learning experiences with other students enrolled in the online classes.
Once students graduate from their online English program they receive a graduation certificate along with an official transcript.
American Language Academy was founded in 2007 by Ms. Yuni Nguyen, Owner and President.
In November 2011, American Language Academy began seeking institutional accreditation from the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (“CEA”) for its Greensboro, NC campus. In April 2013, CEA granted American Language Academy accreditation for its main campus, and again in April 2014.
ALA first began researching on how to provide live, interactive instruction online in Fall 2014. By 2015, ALA started designing online Intensive English Program courses to be offered in addition to our face-to-face Intensive English Program for English language learners who were unable to attend class in person at any of ALA’s physical locations.
In 2016, ALA officially began offering online instruction. Since early 2016, all Foundation English levels of the Intensive English and English for Academic Purposes Program have been accredited by the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA).
The mission of American Language Academy is to provide the best learning experiences and support to English Learners (ELs) to meet their language needs for their academic, professional, and social purposes.
American Language Academy has set these specific goals in order to carry out the mission:
to ensure the highest levels of student achievement in language acquisition by setting high expectations for faculty, students, and administrators
to ensure highly qualified personnel in all areas by setting high educational standards, providing ongoing professional development, and offering competitive salary and benefits
to increase and diversify student enrollment by continuously improving student services
