"I am the mother of a 20 month old little girl, and because I am a stay at home mom online classes are a necessity. I would not be able to maintain a full time status if I were not given the opportunity to take online courses. The distance learning programs would not be so successful if it were not for Blue Ridge's excellent instructors."
Many courses are available online that apply towards a curriculum degree, diploma, or for college transfer. Some include: American Sign Language, History, Psychology, British Literature, Study Skills, Intro to Computers, Business Ethics, Intro to Early Childhood, Horticulture Pest Management, World Civilizations I, and more . . .
Online Continuing Education courses towards Professional Growth
"Your Distance Learning Program has been a lifesaver to me. I am a police officer from Elizabethtown, North Carolina. I am currently serving ... in Afghanistan. I was not able to arrange leave to get home . . . and take the mandated in-service training in person and your on-line courses offered my only option.
Your program is making it possible for me and others to take time away form our regular police duties and do our part to fight terrorism in places like Afghanistan, Iraq and Kosovo."
- R.G., Jalalabad Regional Commander
