Meet Pearson Online Academy's Involved Parents

One of the hallmarks of Pearson Online Academy’s virtual school program is parental involvement. A parent’s (or other trusted adult’s) involvement in learning activities shows children that education is a top priority and helps ensure their success. There are proven benefits to this level of parent involvement in education, such as improved grades and test scores, higher graduation rates, and greater enrollment in postsecondary education. At Pearson Online Academy, the person who supports the child’s education in the home is called a Learning Coach.
