OKLAHOMA CITY -- March 12, 2013

Advanced Academics, a leading online learning provider for grades 6 through 12
that is part of the DeVry family of high-quality educational institutions,
today announced a value-priced summer program designed to help school
districts with budget challenges meet the diverse academic needs of students
looking to make up credits, accelerate learning or explore academic areas of
interest during the summer.

Advanced Academics’ robust summer school offering consists of a comprehensive
curriculum aligned to state and Common Core standards; a 1:1 instructional
model that allows students to receive individualized tutoring and assistance
from any location using a personal computer, smartphone or tablet; proprietary
diagnostics courses that accelerate credit recovery by customizing course
content; and competitive pricing with flexible payment options. Advanced
Academics’ unique instructional model also allows school districts to begin
their program as early as this spring.

“Today’s school administrators are being asked to do more with fewer
resources,” said Robert York, Advanced Academics president. “While summer
school continues to be an important tool for helping students behind on
credits catch up and stay on the path toward a high school diploma, it can
also help students accelerate their progress or take courses not available
during the school year. Our flexible, effective summer school options help
districts stretch their budgets, allowing them to create customized summer
programs that meet their students’ academic needs.”

Advanced Academics’ summer school offering includes:

1:1 Instructional Model

Highly qualified, state-certified Advanced Academics instructors are available
to help students during critical learning moments 24 hours a day, Monday
through Friday. Instructors offer individualized tutoring and assistance via
phone, chat or e-mail. All Advanced Academics teachers hold bachelor’s or
master’s degrees in their subject area and have significant classroom teaching
experience.

Diagnostics Courses

An effective credit recovery option, Advanced Academics’ rigorous
diagnostics-based courses accelerate course completion by focusing on concepts
students have not previously mastered. Students take a two-part auto-graded
diagnostic test that accurately assesses their current mastery of course
standards. Course content is then customized to require only those areas for
which the student does not demonstrate mastery. Students can move through
their course more quickly, saving the school district time and money.

Competitive Pricing

Advanced Academics is offering special summer school pricing and flexible
payment options for its comprehensive suite of online courses. Advanced
Academics is able to deliver its diagnostics-based credit recovery courses for
as low as $50 per student per course using the district’s teachers or as low
as $150 per course using Advanced Academics’ certified, highly-qualified
teachers.

Learn Anywhere, Anytime with the Advanced Academics Platform

Using Advanced Academics’ proprietary online platform, ROADS, students can
access courses anywhere they have an Internet connection – in a classroom
learning lab, at home or at the library. Now, the industry-leading ROADS app
gives Advanced Academics students mobile access to the ROADS platform using
iOS devices. Students enrolled in Advanced Academics online programs can
access grades, post to discussion boards and get real-time assistance from
teachers via an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch^®. The app gives students increased
flexibility by being able to access grades and other important data from a
smartphone or tablet, as well as a personal computer.

Earn College Credit at No Cost

Advanced Academics students can benefit from DeVry University’s
Passport2College program, which gives eligible students a chance to earn
college credit at no cost, improving college readiness and helping students
get a head start on their college careers. Qualifying high school students can
take up to four college courses through the program. To participate, students
