"We've been with Pearson Online Academy for five years now, and it all started with a wonderful experience with the school's summer school program," said Janette Getui, parent of eleventh grade student Vanessa "Ace" Magnano. "Ace wanted an online summer school program that offered high-quality math and science courses and found Pearson Online Academy's challenging curriculum. She 'campaigned' us to enroll her that summer and we've stayed ever since. Through the school's advanced coursework, flexible learning model, and encouraging teachers, Ace has been able to explore her passion for math and science at her own pace, her way."
