We believe educators are key to “making the difference” in high school student motivation and success. That is why we choose only the most dedicated, experienced educators to interact with our students.
• Teachers: With an average of 25 years of teaching experience, 9 of those online, Apex Learning VS instructors have a passion for teaching. Most have master’s degrees or higher in their subjects. In online group discussions, feedback for individual assignments, and one-to-one interactions, our teachers support, challenge, and engage students in the subjects they love.
• Coaches: Each student at Apex Learning VS has an assigned coach who monitors overall experience and performance and regularly interacts with the student to support successful progress.
• Guidance and college counselors: Proactive, experienced high school counselors have the time to get to know each student well. They work with individuals to build the best plan for academic success at Apex Learning VS and to prepare for college admissions.
At Apex Learning VS, the education experience is closely aligned with each student’s aspirations, interests, and learning style. Course selection fits personal learning needs and academic goals. A flexible schedule lets students start any time of year, complete courses in a traditional or block format, and engage in daily coursework at times that are best for them.
And most importantly for learning gains, daily instruction is individualized. Students progress through a course at their own pace, speeding up when they “get it” and taking time to review or get extra help as needed. Multimedia content presentations support multiple learning styles. One-to-one interactions with online teachers offer motivation and support customized to each student’s needs.
At Apex Learning VS, school spirit is high. Students engage in online discussions to deepen their understanding of concepts and learn from each other. Online clubs and activities form around mutual interests and develop meaningful connections between students.
