    Does the United Learning Academy still exist? Their domain name seems to have expired.

      I tried calling them with no luck. I suspect they are no longer in existence. I will remove them from the list.

      They are still very much alive and active in Ann Arbor! They are connected to Oxford Virtual Academy so that, once you register with OVA, you can take up to 5 ULA classes at no expense to you. Their classes are held on Thursdays, both fall and spring semesters, providing a fantastic selection of course content for all different ages. Please look them up again!

    Just wanted you to know that Totus Tuus is not currently operating. Unfortunately, there were not enough students for the 2014-15 school year, and so it has folded.
