Safe Return to In-Person Instruction

The Academy at Middle Fork returned to full face-to-face instruction on Aug. 23, 2021.

Appalachian State University continues to make data-driven decisions informed by prevailing national, state, and local public health guidance, ordinances, and restrictions.

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety, and well-being of the App State community, which includes the Academy at Middle Fork. As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public health officials issue new orders and guidance, App State will update procedures and plans as needed. The university will follow all state and federal orders, directives of The University of North Carolina System, and will adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health in order to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment. The Academy at Middle Fork has returned to in-person instruction for all students.
