Earn College Credit CLEP/DSST & WMA program
CLEP/DSST from the Collegeboard.org "The S.A.T. guy's" & Dept of Defense, you can earn 3 units in 90 minutes for $80, and the avg. college cost to take the same class would be $700+ (not counting text books, gas, time etc.) Many Universities/College's will except up to 2 yr's of coursework in AP, CLEP,DSST in the BS/BA programs (a savings of $12,400). With the average College Student graduating with $29,000 of debt it makes sense to consider CLEP program, DSST program & FREE World Mentoring Academy (106 courses located first listing on Left in K-12 Education) .

Aaron Swartz RIP
In Honor of Aaron we have named Computer Science Dept for a year in his honor.
Hacker, programmer, writer and activist Aaron Swartz has died of suicide at age 26. His body was found in his apartment on Friday. Aaron was one of those preternaturally brilliant, precocious hackers who, at the age of 14, co-developed the Really Simple Syndication or RSS web protocol that is the key component of much of the web’s entire publishing infrastructure. Co-founder of Reddit also founded Demand Progress, which was instrumental in fights to keep the internet open and free, and in the battle to defeat the Stop Online Piracy Act. He developed the architecture for the Creative Commons licensing system and in 2010 he was a fellow at Harvard’s Safra Center for Ethics. The Justice Dept. was proscuting him for 13 felony counts, wrongfully downloading info he was allowed access too.
