Edgenuity

Edgenuity uses a combination of animations, simulations, video-led direct instruction, relevant websites and a myriad of activities that support the lesson’s topic. Students have a wealth of information at their fingertips that can be reviewed as many times as necessary to achieve mastery. Students will also have the support of a teacher from their school. Edgenuity is appropriate for students who want video-led instruction with limited teacher support from their home school. Edgenuity offers a variety of courses including AP, honors and general education courses. Edgenuity offers language support for English language learners as well.
