Arianne Doucet is a student at Pearson Online Academy. She lives with her stepfather, mother, and sister in the Bahamas. Arianne’s older sister, Daphné, also attends Pearson Online Academy. Arianne appreciates Pearson Online Academy’s flexibility and challenging curriculum. Learn more about her story below.
Arianne enrolled with Pearson Online Academy in the 2014–15 school year. She was looking for a curriculum that challenged her. Arianne also wanted to have more time to complete her schoolwork so she could travel with her family. Prior to enrolling in Pearson Online Academy, she attended a traditional school in Anguilla, located in the eastern Caribbean.
Arianne’s mother, Danielle Gauthier, says, “In 2014, we found the perfect school for our girls. Pearson Online Academy allows our family to move from island to island and maintain stability while our daughters obtain a good education.” The program works well for Arianne because she likes to have structure and enjoys being able to start her school day when she’s ready. “After being enrolled in Pearson Online Academy, we noticed that Arianne seemed happier and appreciated how the curriculum was much more at her speed,” Danielle says.
Similar to Daphné, Arianne’s favorite subject is science because she enjoys learning about nature and loves to do lab experiments. At Pearson Online Academy, Arianne has a wonderful relationship with her teachers. She finds them to be extremely helpful, and they make learning exciting for her. “I love the LiveLesson® sessions because I have the opportunity to meet other students in my class. I find it interesting how the online classroom looks like a physical classroom,” Arianne says.
Arianne has many activities that keep her occupied when she isn’t traveling or studying. She is passionate about nature, and loves spending her spare time observing animals. When Arianne is not busy with school work, she enjoys going fishing, going to the beach, and having sleepovers with friends.
After Arianne graduates from Pearson Online Academy, she wants to attend McGill University in Montreal, Canada. In the future, Arianne plans on pursuing a career in law or becoming a doctor.
I love Pearson Online Academy because I can travel and change countries without having to change schools each time. I also like that Pearson Online Academy is religious free.
