Welcome, Illinois educators! We know you work tirelessly to meet the diverse needs of your students, but you don’t have to do it alone. Edgenuity provides flexible, online and blended learning solutions that propel student success and give Illinois teachers the tools they need to deliver more effective instruction. We’ll work side by side with your school or district to ensure you have the tools and resources you need to leverage online learning to improve student outcomes.
We’re proud to offer Illinois schools over 200 Common Core and Illinois Learning Standards aligned core curriculum, honors, AP®, credit recovery, and elective courses through Edgenuity® Courseware™. Middle and high school students can use a combination of our rigorous, award-winning online curriculum and face-to-face instruction for initial credit or credit recovery.
Pathblazer® helps Illinois educators close early learning gaps by immediately identifying where students are struggling and providing the targeted instruction they need to accelerate to grade level.
MyPath™ is an online intervention program designed to meet middle school and high school students at their learning level and provide age-appropriate, data-driven, targeted instruction in math and reading to help students get back on track.
Edgenuity’s Virtual Tutor online test preparation courses prepare Illinois students for the ACT, SAT, GED, and other high stakes exams. Diagnostic assessments create a personalized learning path for each student, so they only receive instruction and practice on skills they have yet to master.
Incorporating SEL into the classroom can have a profound effect on students, so Edgenuity now offers six SEL courses in partnership with Purpose Prep. Educators can use the full courses or the individual modules within them to design the learning experience for students. And all courses align to the core SEL competencies outlined by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning.
To meet the growing demand for online driver education curriculum, Edgenuity now offers a driver education course tailored to the needs of Illinois schools and districts. The Edgenuity Illinois Driver Education Course is a complete online curriculum for grades 9-12. The 30 hours of classroom instruction can be implemented by any school in Illinois.
Edgenuity Instructional Services offers Common Core and Illinois Learning Standards-aligned courses taught by highly qualified, Illinois-certified virtual instructors. You can use our virtual teachers to supplement your school’s course offerings, offset teacher shortages, offer summer school, provide NCAA-approved courses for your student athletes, meet the needs of homebound learners, or develop and staff your own virtual school.
We work with you every step of the way to ensure you have the support you need to help Illinois educators and students achieve their academic goals.
