High Tech and High Touch
Using the Internet, students connect to our school using Pearson Online Classroom (formerly known as Connexus®), our proprietary education management system built specifically for online learning. Under the direction of caring, qualified teachers, students can access and complete coursework online, working independently.
Through this system, students also meet regularly with teachers and classmates in the virtual classroom for real-time instruction. Added benefits of our technology include a fully controlled instant messaging system plus audio/video chat, full feature whiteboard system, and group chat capabilities, which bring the virtual classroom to life. Teachers are also available to answer questions and provide one-on-one support when needed.
Students, teachers, and family members communicate through our own secure WebMail system, on dedicated message boards, or by telephone. Our online grade book allows students and parents/ guardians to track their progress at any time of day or night. Families can also monitor all students within the household easily from the system home page.
Train and Learn On-Site
For partners who provide on-site programs, Pearson Online Academy offers the full solution for your student’s academic and professional success. Participants in Pearson Online Academy have the flexibility to easily adapt their schoolwork to their demanding schedules. Using our online curriculum, your students can learn together in a classroom-like setting while at the same facility and also engage in their specific program.
Involved Parents/Guardians Ensure Success
Involved parents or guardians play a vital role in their student’s success. Parents or guardians work alongside the international school program to help deliver an individualized approach to instruction and learning for their student. In addition, the parent or guardian monitors the student’s daily activities, encourages progress, and communicates regularly with the class teacher to ensure the student stays on track.
Pearson Online Academy offers two levels of partnership.
Our affiliate program is a turnkey solution that can be added to your existing program, enabling you to expand your offerings to students and their families. At a discounted rate to the organization, affiliates contract Pearson Online Academy directly to provide full- or part-time educational services. In addition, both full- and part-time affiliates benefit from having an Pearson Online Academy program manager and a site coordinator to administer the program.
Our promotional partnership is for organizations that realize the benefit of a flexible, online school for their students, but prefer to allow parents to make the school choice directly and supervise their student’s learning program. Promotional partners recommend Pearson Online Academy to participating families and receive a commission for each student enrolled.
