COLUMBIA, S.C., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Provost Academy, South Carolina's free online public high school, will offer extended year education beginning July 1, 2010. This new option is being offered for students who would like to accelerate their education or for those who need additional time to complete assignments.

"Flexibility is one of the key benefits of online line learning," said Dr. Darrell Johnson, executive director of Provost Academy.  "Extending the school year to meet the individual needs of our students was an obvious step to take."

Dr. Johnson noted that Provost Academy boasts many accelerated students – including five who were recently inducted into the National Honor Society, "who yearn for an educational experience throughout the entire year."

"We treat our students as young adults. We provide them with the tools and flexibility they need to succeed, and we allow them to choose the course that best applies to their needs and capabilities," Dr. Johnson said.
