Company Description
Apex Learning started as a credit recovery program after school and has expanded into a program called Ranger Academy. Twenty percent of the 2014 class from North Ridgeville High School used Apex Learning to graduate on time. Without the Apex Learning program and the ability to offer blended learning for our students, we would not have the success we do in making kids lifelong learners, thus allowing them to achieve long-term goals.

Company reviews
"no review available"
Former EmployeeSales Assistant
This company started off great, then it didn't meet my expectations. When ever I went to my manager for help, they said that they didn't want to be involved with my drama.

"Decent company to work for"
Current EmployeeAccount Executive
Decent company to work for. Great established legacy product. Wonderful service team. Product development is attentive and in line. Apparent gap in Sales leadership.

"Apex learning"
Former EmployeeAccount Executive
Non profit for educational software for highschools helping AP students with AP courses, Alt. Education, and credit retention. In the sales position you are assigned a territory and reference selling is best along with cold calling

"Great place to work"
Current EmployeeManager
Apex is an excellent place to work. Good work life balance and there is time to learn new things. There is never a moment where one is not learning new things either about the company, products or even business as a whole.
