The goal of our International Geography program is to help students understand their land and other lands around the world. Through a "LIVE" connection with students from Africa, students will describe places and environments from their country. Students can discuss how geography affects their lives. Students will utilize their research, critical thinking, public speaking and presentation skills in our program. By learning about geography from around the world from their peers, students will gain a better understanding and appreciation of the world we all live in.

The primary goal of the ANCC is to increase student test scores, decrease drop-out rates and to reduce the achievement gap of schools. We utilize state of the art videoconferencing technology to connect students with students in Africa. Through “LIVE” face to face educational and cultural exchanges, students become excited about learning. Our telepresence centers bring the classroom to life for the students while at the same time serving to increase their language arts, writing, public speaking, presentation, research, foreign language and critical thinking skills.
