West Liberty University's Advanced Academy of West Virginia  An early entrance to college program designed for students exhibiting a high degree of achievement and potential who are interested in accelerating their academic careers. Students enrolled in this dual-enrollment program are considered full-time college students and all classes are taught at West Liberty University's main campus. The general education courses will not only count toward their college academic credits, but these classes will simultaneously fulfill their high school curriculum requirements. Executive Director Ron Witt says, "The AAWV completes its first full year of operation in May of 2013. The first cohort consists of six students. Of these students, 3 are registered in Ohio County Public Schools, 1 is registered in Marshall County Public Schools, and 2 are registered homeschool students."
