With Pearson Connexus, you can meet the needs of every learner right where they are.
Core courses are standards-based courses in which students work independently and sequentially through the courses guided by both system- and teacher-generated feedback and grading. Teachers monitor student performance and differentiate instruction to support student learning.
Core courses are ideal for first-time instruction, situations in which "time in course" is important, and the fulfillment of NCAA rules and regulations.
Foundations courses are standards-based courses adjusted to give students greater support on core concepts and provide additional practice and review.
In addition to grade 9–12 foundations courses, essential math courses are offered in grades 3–8 to provide students with added support in prerequisite concepts and skills.
Advanced courses are comprised of Advanced Placement (AP®), honors, and gifted and talented courses.
- AP courses include college-level work to help students prepare for the Advanced Placement exam and earn college credit.
- Honors courses in grades 9–12 provide students with rigorous assignments for enrichment and honors credits. Teachers engage students in discussion and facilitate independent exploratory projects.
- Gifted and talented courses in grades 3–8 provide students with above-grade-level content, project-based portfolios, and assignments with increased cognitive rigor.
Elective courses are sequential, standards-based courses that provide students with opportunities to extend their learning in areas of interest or focus. Elective offerings span multiple subject areas, such as the arts, STEM, world languages, and Career Technology Education (CTE). CTE electives may focus on a variety of career clusters and/or pathways.
