The problem with most online credit recovery programs

When a student fails a course, or maybe several courses, online learning becomes an alluring option, a second chance to recover the credits required for graduation.

The only problem? It should come as no surprise that moving a student’s learning into an online format does not guarantee a different outcome. If you provide a highly-supportive learning environment, however, their odds of success increase.

That’s why we’ve tailored our Essentials courses — a high-quality, online, credit recovery and alternative learning solution — to meet the needs of students who need extra support in order to succeed in their online courses.
