Everything necessary for a comprehensive education is found in the OLS, including lesson plans, attendance tracking, planning and progress tools, resources, materials lists, and much more. Generally, children in grades K–5 do about 20–30 percent of the work online.
We have a variety of private school options, each of which has its own fee structure.
And you can also purchase courses directly for supplemental or independent homeschool use.
Middle school and high school students have more refined reading skills, so instruction and activities involve increased computer use according to educational standards. First, we suggest that you visit our "What's Your Story" site, where you can read real stories from K12 students and families about how an individualized online education has made a difference in their lives.
Also, many of our online public schools have Facebook pages set up to connect local families. In addition, you may want to attend one of the many face-to-face activities hosted by K12 and our local schools every month.
Students can also join a wide variety of clubs—some student-led, some headed by teachers—covering myriad topics of interests and connecting them to their peers around the nation and across the globe.
Along with the curriculum, we give you planning and progress tools to help you plan your day, including an electronic calendar with suggested lessons for each day and a detailed outline of the total time required for each lesson.
The K12 team has developed a comprehensive program that is designed to exceed national and state education standards.
Our goal is to provide children with an education that is comparable or superior to that provided by the nation's best public and private schools, regardless of demographic constraints.
We also offer summer school courses, world languages for grades 3–12, early learning programs for preschoolers, credit recovery, AP courses, STEM courses, and more.
Visit our K–8 online courses and high school online courses sections for full lists of all K12 courses.
The lesson plans can be varied to accommodate the child's pace or abilities.
