A Message From Our Principal

A strong Principal plays a huge role in the success of online high school and online students

As you are planning your future, choosing the right course is only a small step toward achieving your goals. You should also be aware that how you experience the course can have a significant impact on your success. Today, you have many options to choose from when it comes to meeting your academic needs and achieving your goals. We want you to recognize that although the curriculum may be similar across different educational environments, it’s the individual experience that matters most, and can sometimes be the difference between success and failure or achieving your desired grade.

At Apex Academy Online, we understand the importance of creating a supportive and nurturing environment to help students realize their full potential. We recognize that in certain circumstances an online environment can sometimes be isolating, which is why we ensure that we connect with our students on many fronts, including learning conference meetings, check-ins with guidance counsellors, and active participation in group discussion forums. In each of these areas, we are making sure that students are getting the best possible experience to make the most of their opportunities.

Of course, we haven’t forgotten the central purpose of the course itself. We are committed to making our course content new, engaging, and easy to interact with. Our courses use a wide range of differentiation and media to engage and inspire students to be the best they can be.

At Apex Academy Online we understand that students have busy lives, often with competing demands on their time, which is why we offer the flexibility for students to study at their own pace and time that suits them. We are there to help, guide, and support them through their journey.

Whether a student wishes to take a single course, or a full course load, we offer them the inclusive support and encouragement needed to excel. Our focus is creating an environment where students can not only succeed, but thrive.

If you have any questions, please feel free to connect with us and whatever you decide, I wish you every success in your future.

– Frances Hatcher, Principal
