Accelerated Learning Center was founded in September of 2005 by Dr. Paul Graden and a few other investors. Accelerated Learning Center, Inc. was sold in a stock sale to Stephen Jones in November of 2012. Under the new leadership ALC has been totally restructured. In July of 2013 ALC launched a new and improved program with more current and helpful study material. The new material is and will always remain up to date with Excelsior College’s Nursing Program and the text books that they require. Our new program is not only accelerated and affordable but is current, easier to comprehend, and has more study tools than most non-traditional programs. This new tutoring program and study material will better prepare you for success in your quest for the final examinations and the completion of your college degree and RN license.
