Online Student Services: Orientation and Support

After carefully researching the factors that contribute to success in virtual schooling, Pearson Online Academy developed a two-part family support program. This unique foundation of online learning support sets Pearson Online Academy apart—and helps make the learning experience more engaging and rewarding for students and families:

Get Started!

This robust onboarding program provides online learning support and helps new families begin virtual school strong, and includes:

  • Orientation courses for both students and parents
  • Learning Coach Success Series, online sessions where experienced Pearson Online Academy parents share their insights and give pointers, and new families can ask questions
  • Welcome phone calls from teachers
  • Summer Connections, an opportunity for students to take part in Pearson Online Academy summer clubs and activities before the school year begins. Starting in stage 3 of enrollment (after documents have been submitted and the registration fee has been paid), families will get communications about these opportunities.
  • Improvements to student and parent home pages in the learning management system

Get Coaching!

This program helps both new and experienced Learning Coaches learn more about their roles and responsibilities, and features:

  • Learning Coach Central, a hub of resources and quick links in our learning management system specifically designed for new Learning Coaches
  • Learning Coach Resource Sessions, live online sessions throughout the year that help parents and caretakers become successful Learning Coaches, and engage with other Learning Coaches
  • Learning Coach Link, a monthly newsletter with tips and tricks for Learning Coaches, and information about upcoming events and Learning Coach training sessions
