Apex Learning is an educational company that provides blended and virtual learning solutions to school districts around the United States. Apex Learning has products and programs that focus on primary learning, remedial learning, accelerated learning and test preparation. Exam preparation includes programs for several national and regional standardized tests.
In addition to full virtual courses that use a traditional distance learning model, Apex Learning also offers blended learning programs to school districts. A blended learning program is a course that incorporates aspects of a virtual course with traditional classroom instruction. Apex's blended learning programs have been successful, increasing graduation rates in school districts in East Greenbush, New York, and St. Mary's County, Maryland.
Apex Learning offers learning products in two main categories: courses and tutorials. Courses provide a full year or semester of classroom instruction, including basic instruction, homework and exams. Tutorials have fewer features and are designed to supplement traditional classroom instruction. In addition to supplemental tutorials, Apex also features tutorials designed to prepare students for a variety of state and national standardized tests.
Apex learning is accredited by Northwest Accreditation Commission, which is a division of AdvancED. Many of Apex's courses are also certified by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. NCAA-approved courses are necessary for high school students wishing to compete in NCAA sports once attending a college or university.
