The online AA program makes it possible for me to continue my education while raising my newborn son and working full-time in the mental health field. I would not be able to further my college education or advance in my career if it was not for distance learning. The facility and staff are accommodating and helpful. I am receiving a great quality education while managing my personal and professional responsibilities.
