What Students Are Saying about Private Online School


[My Teachers] set up amazing LiveLesson® sessions every week and explain the current unit in a broad form. I also really like going to Social Hour—a LiveLesson that teachers organize for students to chat about hobbies or school. I enjoy talking to people across the world and learning more about them.

I now have time to dedicate myself to STEM projects and subjects that interest me. Plus, I enjoy learning about the United States, thanks to each of my teachers.


After graduation, I plan to attend a medical or biomedical program in Europe. Pearson Online Academy has helped me by providing [an official] American diploma that’s recognized around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions


Pearson Online Academy allows you to connect with teachers, lessons, and classmates online. Students have the flexibility to access school anywhere there is an internet connection at a time of the day when learning works best for them. In an online environment, each student’s experience can be personalized. Teachers have access to real-time student data, which allows them to modify instruction or practice skills, and offer more resources.

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.
