What computer skills are required?

Some basic skills are required. Use of the computer is an important part of the program, but in the early grades it is mostly the parent (or other responsible adult) who interacts with the computer. The program is user-friendly.

What computer equipment is required to use K12?

You need either a Windows-based or Apple Macintosh computer with an Internet connection and free software programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Most courses have audio, so speakers are required. World language courses require both speakers and microphones.

Can you guarantee that my information is secure?

Yes, we guarantee that we will not share your information with anyone. See our privacy policy for more details.

Can I get K12 on my mobile device or e-reader?

Unfortunately, many portable devices do not support the software products required to run the Online School. These devices include, but are not limited to, iPads, iPhones, iPods, Kindles, Nooks, and the newer Android phones.

We do have apps specifically created to run on smart phones and other mobile devices, but these are meant to support our lessons. Learn more about our mobile apps.
