Pearson Online Academy students often lead busy lives, and this online flexibility allows for learning when it works best for them. Students will need to be available for teacher-led online classroom LiveLesson® sessions, but are able to choose how to arrange their free time in between. For some students, scheduling breaks in between lessons may be the answer to optimized learning. For others, leaving time for extracurricular activities is key. Pearson Online Academy students also have the opportunity to connect with their peers during online socialization opportunities, including clubs and activities.
