“Parents and students in Oklahoma and across the country are increasingly turning to online education for quality instruction customized to each student's individual learning style, whether they are looking for a comprehensive virtual school or online classes to supplement their local offerings and school districts,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, president of Advanced Academics. “Our expanded home office will help us to better serve the thousands of middle and high school students who depend upon us for their education.”
Building on Bricktown
Advanced Academics started in Bricktown's Kingman Building five years ago — a history noted by Gov. Mary Fallin.
“Many of the largest job-creating companies in Oklahoma were actually started in Oklahoma by aspiring entrepreneurs with an idea to make something better,” Fallin said. “That is the case with Advanced Academics. In a few short years, this company has become a national leader in the field of online education. Today, they continue to excel and grow from their home in Oklahoma City's Bricktown District, where they are adding dozens of great jobs every year and contributing to the vibrancy of this unique area.”
