CPS Online Announcements
Goodbye "Apex"...Hello "Edgenuity!"
CPS Online has changed content providers for certain courses. Courses that were taught using "Apex" in years past will now be taught using "Edgenuity." Although this will mean that students who were used to "Apex" will have to learn a new LMS (Learning Management System), we are confident that the increased flexibility of the Edgenuity platform will be a huge benefit to all of our online learners!
Columbia Public Schools offers students in grades 9-12 the opportunity to take one/more of their classes online. These online courses are designed for students who are self-motivated and can work independently. In an online course, students take the entire course online as opposed to a face-to-face classroom environment. Courses follow the same semester calendar as face-to-face courses.Course Selection Includes (but is not limited to):
- Career Path Internship
- Career Exploration
- Personal Finance
- Physical Education
- U.S. Government
- Click on the "CPS Online Course Offerings" link to the left for a current list of available courses and/or ask your counselor for more information.
