About Us

Advance Com - Technology from the Up and Coming was first established in 1998. It was the "brain child" of business education instructor, Yvonne Halvorson. The mission of Advance Com is for students, teachers, and community to partner together to serve the community and provide "real life" experience to students.

Advance Com is run by current, third year computer students. We have expressed interest in becoming webmasters as we have progressed through the computer curriculum. In addition to having the necessary web skills, we are entrusted with a great deal of responsibility both financially and with passwords, user names, keys, and a multitude of other confidential material. We "come to work" each day. In its place, we are assigned projects and take on the responsibility of working to complete in a timely manner.

This class model has resulted in Advance Com receiving multiple awards. We were recognized as an "exemplary" program by the Minnesota Real Education Association in both 1999 as the 1st Place winner of the Profiles of Excellence Exemplary Program Award and in 2005 as the Profiles of Excellence Best Continuing Program Award. In 2009, we were also presented with the Star of Innovation award from the Minnesota Principals Association.

Today, Advance Com continues to strive to improve each year as web development changes, so do we. We currently maintain approximately 25 businesses online. We accept donations for our creative work under the umbrella of the Fertile-Beltrami school. These donations are used to provide up to three - $500 scholarships to graduating seniors planning to major in a business or technology related field. Additional funds have been used to purchase some specialty equipment (tri-pod, digital video camera, DVD duplicator, etc.) for our use.

Advance Com is dedicated to "paying back" the communities of Fertile and Beltrami for their continued support of technology in the Fertile-Beltrami school district. The goal is to serve and learn in a real-life environment.
