Often, we think of digital courseware as a solution to a single problem; typically credit recovery or alternative education. But the reality is that having courseware opens numerous opportunities. Are you ready to move beyond credit recovery and find unique ways to engage students?

End-of-Course Performance Improves Two Consecutive Years for Credit Recovery Students Using Apex Learning
Students in need of credit recovery are often our most vulnerable students — those in need of the greatest support and personalized instruction. It’s critical that digital curriculum used in credit recovery programs be rigorous, engaging and capable of providing a personalized learning experience for every student. Curriculum deficient in any of these areas could mean the difference between students dropping out and earning a high school diploma.
