Individual Courses: A Part-Time School Solution

For students who wish to enrich their current academic programs, Pearson Online Academy offers a part-time school program with hundreds of high-quality K–12 teacher-led, student-focused courses available for individual purchase.

Pearson Online Academy’s part-time individual online courses are ideal for many students. Some families are looking for advanced STEM or world language courses that are unavailable locally. Homeschool families can supplement their instruction with our individual high school courses, and advanced learners can accelerate learning with honors and Advanced Placement®* courses. Other students may need additional credits to get back on track for graduation. Student athletes, too, can benefit by enrolling in Pearson Online Academy’s NCAA-approved part time courses.

World-Class Courses

Our engaging, student-focused individual courses are developed by subject-matter experts and recognized leaders in online education. Students receive support from a certified teacher trained in online instruction, who delivers real-time LiveLesson®sessions that are recorded** for later review. Students also study independently using our award-winning curriculum, including best-of-class course materials, online texts, and interactive technology. To verify learning, teachers conduct curriculum-based assessments by phone for all core courses. This assessment must be completed prior to the end date of each course and is required for a student to receive course credit. Students who do not complete the curriculum-based assessment call will not earn course credit.
