The K¹² high school experience is one with exceptional courses, dedicated teachers, a strong support team, and an individualized program. It's a place where you can truly find your path.
A High School Experience Like No Other
With more than 150 online high school courses from which to choose, including multiple levels of core subjects (from remediation to AP®), students can enjoy an individualized high school program tailored to their goals and abilities. Whether targeting a top-tier university, a local community college, or an immediate career, K¹² will help maximize each student's personal post-high school success.
An Individualized Learning Plan provides the roadmap for counselors and students to chart a course for success during and after high school. Supported by a combination of teachers, advisors, counselors and customer support representatives, students benefit from the support and direction of up to eight professionals dedicated to helping them reach their xPotential™. K¹² high school students are also connected to a broader community of like-minded learners through engaging online forums, clubs, and networks—all of which allow them to thrive in the flexible learning environment.
K¹²'s high school program is available in many states through top online public schools, as well as worldwide through the private K¹² International Academy. (Students can also take individual, for-credit K¹² high school courses with full teacher support on a part-time basis through the K¹² International Academy.)
Superb Teaching and Support
- Enrollment counselors guide you through the enrollment, placement and registration process
- Highly dedicated, state-certified teachers are assigned for each course and are experts in their respective subjects. In high school, teachers are responsible for the class schedule, facilitating online class discussions and for grading students’ assignments and assessments.
- A dedicated Advisor focuses on the overall experience of parents and students and acts as an advocate to trouble-shoot problems
- School counselors help students navigate through the selection of courses, the scheduling of national tests, college (or job) applications, job searches, or whatever is needed—all with the single purpose of helping students get where they want to go after high school
- Customer care and technical support representatives are committed to ensuring that your questions get answered
- Supportive parents help students stay on task and ensure the student is following through on his or her assignments —but the student is expected to start managing his or her own time and schedule more directly. Students will typically spend 5-6 hours daily on coursework and homework
