Apex At A Glance

  • Course information

    • Apex courses are semester long courses. They require the same dedication of learning time as a classroom course. Students will spend nearly 90 hours, plus homework time, in a course.
    • Online classes are not a shortcut to credit. Dedicated, intensive, independent learning is required.
    • Apex courses must be completed before the last day of the semester. All written assignments and unit tests must be completed prior to taking the final tests during the semester.
    • NCAA requires that students take Apex distance courses which set their own schedule and timeline.  However, the same registrations form is used, through your high school counselor. 

    What to do

    • A complete registration includes counselor, student, and parent signatures, on the two-sided form.
    • Any class fees need to be paid at the high school bookkeeping office.
    • Orientation attendance is required of all new students and parents. 

    Lab information

    • The Parkway Apex office and lab hours are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:30-4:30 p.m., and Tuesday from 3:15-6:30 p.m.
    • Glacier Peak High School lab time is Tuesday and Thursday from 2:30-3:30 p.m.
    • Teachers are available for Apex students during Apex lab hours, as posted in the lab schedule.
    • All tests must be taken in the Parkway Campus or Glacier Peak High School labs and must be proctored. 
    • Students may receive help during lab time. However, this is not to be viewed as a regular private tutoring option. Students must be able to study and learn independently in order to be successful.
