K12 Language arts/English courses help students develop important reading and writing skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Younger children learn the basics of phonics and grammar and prepare for reading while older students develop literary analysis and comprehension skills by reading novels and nonfiction works.
K12 math courses balance mastery of fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem-solving. Online games and animations illustrate concepts, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery of basic skills.
K12 science courses balance hands-on experiments with the systematic study of terms and concepts in life, earth, and physical sciences. Students learn how scientists understand our world and how the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances.
K12 history courses—with integrated topics in geography and civics—open young minds to far-off lands, distant times, and diverse cultures, emphasizing the story in history—a story that includes not only great men and women but also everyday people.
K12 art courses introduce students to great works of art from different cultures and eras, while engaging them in creative activity. Students learn the elements of art; study important paintings, sculpture, and architecture; and explore different artistic movements, then create their own works of art such as mobiles, collages, and stained glass.
K12 music courses teach basic Western music concepts at age-appropriate levels. This program helps students train their ears, voices, and bodies in the fundamental building blocks of music.
