MOUNT VERNON — Whether a student needs to make up missing credits or wants to accelerate the acquisition of credits, the Digital Academy at Mount Vernon High School serves as an alternate, online, pathway to educational success.

Coordinators Joseph Rucker and Anthony Naples are excited about the program.

“This is a different approach to education,” Rucker said. “It allows students to truly work at their own pace. It is aligned to core standards, is NCAA approved, and we coordinate with the ‘brick and mortar’ teachers. This is not a watered down version of our curriculum: It can include science, math, health, art and other electives and there are the same grade requirements. It is fairly rigorous, but is individualized to meet each student’s needs.”
