Online Summer School for High School Students
With more than 100 different online courses to choose from, flexible start dates, and exciting courses to keep students engaged during the summer months, Pearson Online Academy’s online summer school for high school students suits their academic needs and busy summer schedules.
Original Credit High School Courses
High school original credit courses require the equivalent of about four hours of work per day, five days a week for the duration of the course. While Connexus®, our education management system, allows summer school students to complete assignments at their convenience, scheduled LiveLesson® sessions allow students to interact in real-time with the teacher and fellow students.

Enrolling and Transferring Credits
Students who plan to transfer credit from Pearson Online Academy to their full-time high school (a non-Connections Academy school) should be aware that the decision about whether to accept Pearson Online Academy course credits is wholly at the discretion of the school to which you hope to transfer the credits.
We strongly recommend that you ask about your school’s transfer credit policy and inform the school about your plans to take Pearson Online Academy courses prior to registering for an Pearson Online Academy course.
To obtain credit for an Pearson Online Academy course at your full-time school, you may need the course description and Credit Pre-Approval Form. Please contact an admissions advisor at +1-888-260-4159 with any questions.
