Response From: Nathan of Bov Academy
Title: Director of Student Affairs
Friday, Dec 15 2017

It's heartbreaking when we see a review such as this.  When the student leaves neither a name nor details of what he or she felt we were lacking, we are unable to resolve any issues.  Please contact our student ambassador so that he may address any concerns you have.

In the meantime, we can only hypothesize what upset this particular student.

Right around the time of this review we published our policy regarding inactive students- or students who had not participated in the program for some time.

We recognize that a good portion of our student body works full time, and as a result this policy is rather flexible.  Students need to only turn in a single project every six weeks to remain active.  We also provided procedures to give students time off if they knew in advance they were going to be away.

Furthermore, we provided every single student who had ever signed up for our program notice of the policy change, and gave all students who had let us four weeks to return free of charge.  Most students responded very positively to this change.

In fact we had two students who had been missing over a year ask if they could return to the program and we absolutely allowed them to do so.

We encourage every student's success- even those who leave us bad reviews.  As we mentioned above, please contact us so we may resolve any outstanding complaints.
