Meet the Tennessee Volunteer ChalleNGe Academy (TNVCA) in Nashville, Tennessee, the high school champions of Edmentum’s 2019 Exact Path Skills Challenge competition. I had the chance to talk with Kevin Meadows, lead instructor at the TNVCA, and chat about how the school is using Exact Path to personalize learning for students in an alternative setting, why Exact Path works for the school, and what got his students motivated to beat out the high school competition.
