School Programs Around the Country

K12 Booster Program

This volunteer parent organization is offered at several of our schools, and each is dedicated to providing opportunities for families to connect, share experiences, and commit to building a thriving school community.

What makes a Booster Program so special? It's all about you and your student! With the support of school representatives, Booster Programs give you an opportunity to explore the things that are important to you and identify how you would like to make an impact. Here are just a few ways to get involved:

  • Interest groups: Help organize activities for groups of students. Booster parents have put together interest groups around art, music, scouting—even Legos®!
  • Outings and field trips: From baseball games to bowling, gym days to museum visits, join us for enrichment, togetherness, and fun.
  • Participation in local fairs and expos: This is a great chance to meet fellow parents, as well as parents interested in online learning. Share your knowledge and your school spirit!
  • Park days and ice cream socials: These are great opportunities to connect with other families in a fun environment.


We use the term "co-op" as shorthand for "cooperative group"—parent-led groups where parents work together to plan and organize fun and meaningful group activities for their children who school at home. Co-op parents work together to tap into each other's strengths and provide support for each other in challenging times. Although these parents primarily teach at home, they see the need and the value of their children engaging in some structured group activities. Engage with parents in your school community to connect to existing co-ops, or create one in your neighborhood.
