Why We Chose PHC Distance Learning

Alumni Stories

DL classes appealed to me because I wanted to stretch myself academically and take interesting, challenging courses. It helped me prepare for the college workload, and I learned some key skills of research and writing before I ever stepped on campus.

- Ashlyn, Class of 2016

The DL program allows students to have the rich PHC education while still remaining home. It prepared me for what a college class looks like and how to handle deadlines and papers – nothing can really prepare you for college except taking college classes. I still to this day use tips and guidelines from Research and Writing class.

- Jason, Class of 2016

I learned so much freshman year of DL classes. The academics were harder than any I had before, and I thrived in the rigor and interactions between students and professor. I learned that I could push myself farther than ever before, and succeed.

- Kara, Class of 2016

The sense of community between DL students is a unique experience, one that came to fruition when we came on campus and I was able to meet face-to-face with my peers from DL.
