We have created the following resources that can be exported as a PDF and provided to parents or students when the student begins working in their Imagine Learning course. These resources include instructions on using the Family Portal, a student user guide, as well as tips for troubleshooting access at home.
Imagine Learning provides an exciting and engaging educational environment that is designed to capture attention and draw students into the interactive world of online and blended learning.
Imagine Learning has provided courses for students since 1998, and through our experience with teachers, students, and parents, we built an engaging and effective curriculum that connects science, math, language arts, social studies, and elective courses to your student’s everyday world.
Using a combination of animations, simulations, video-led direct instruction, relevant web sites, and a myriad of activities that support the lesson’s topic, students have a wealth of information at their fingertips that can be reviewed as many times as necessary to achieve mastery. Imagine Learning strongly believes that each student is unique and acquires information in his or her own way. As a result of that belief, our courses are designed to provide students with activities that support the ways they learn best: seeing, hearing, and touching the course materials.
To ensure your student’s experience with Imagine Learning is successful, we wanted to introduce ourselves and provide information that will enable you to partner with us in this goal. We are thrilled to have you and your student join the Imagine Learning family. Good luck, and have a terrific year!

Support for Parents and Guardians
If your student is new to virtual learning, you’ll notice some differences from in-person learning including how teachers interact with students and how their progress and growth are measured. Even with these changes, both you and your student’s teachers remain crucial components of their success.
The biggest change will be in how the instruction and curriculum are made available to your student. No matter your student’s age, skill level, or ability, it’s good to regularly check in on them to help monitor their progress and remind them that you’re still invested in their academic growth and achievement. Talk through challenges with them, and encourage them to work through struggles. And as you can, celebrate successes, both big and small.
The Imagine Learning Inspiring Breakthroughs Blog provides articles to help families support their students with virtual learning, including the following.
