Why Choose Proximity Learning?
Students will receive instruction from live, highly qualified and state-certified teachers streamed straight into your classroom. Teachers can be part time or full time, giving administrators the flexibility of choosing only the classes needed.
Using our educational experts and highly qualified teaching staff, we develop content to help students not only learn but also enjoy attending class. Using a mix of live video, games, activities, and online curriculum we are able to engage your students like no other educator can.
We will work with each school individually to fully align with their bell schedule, parent teacher conference night, grading expectations, and curriculum adoption. This allows schools to resume normal operations and schedules without affecting current faculty or resources.

PLI courses include the same type of grading, parent teacher interaction, IEP management, and accountability as traditional teachers
