Miss a course? Need a better grade? We can help!
Sometimes scheduling conflicts make it impossible for your child to get all the credits he or she needs to graduate on time. Sometimes it's just a poor semester of Algebra. Or maybe your child just needs to repeat a course to be ready for the next level.

Because our courses are all online, your student will have the scheduling flexibility to retake courses to bring up that GPA, catch up to classmates, and get the credits necessary to graduate on time.

Not the Same-Old, Same-Old
Research indicates that simply repeating the same content a second time is not a successful practice.
Our courses provide a fresh set of content with new approaches to teach "unlearned" concepts. If students fail to initially grasp concepts, they may need a different representation of the concept in order to learn, along with ample opportunities to practice.
Students who did not pass a course initially have usually learned enough to make a complete repetition of the course unnecessary. In these courses, students can test out of the material they've already learned and focus on what they need to demonstrate achievement of essential content standards.
Our courses use engaging interactive content to illustrate and explain the toughest concepts in ways no static page (print or Web) could ever match.
Our textbooks and materials are integrated with the online content, providing you with multiple ways to understand a concept and solve problems, or perform activities to reinforce the material. For students retaking content, computer-based study involves more individualized activity.
Mastery of concepts is critical for successful completion of the course. Our courses have lesson, unit, and semester assessments to ensure that students are grasping key objectives.
Classroom distractions are eliminated and kids can work at a pace that lets them focus on tougher topics. And most courses are ELL-supported.

Getting Course Credit
We know how important it is for students to receive the credit they deserve for completing K12 courses. When students take a K12 course with teacher support, they are eligible to receive a transcript from the accredited K12 International Academy with the final grade(s) shown.
If a student is enrolled full time in another school, this transcript is often required before the credit is accepted and issued by the school or school district. We recommend that you or your child secure approval from your school or district before enrolling in the course, to ensure that they will accept the credit on your transcript. We recommend that you bring the K12 course Scope and Sequence to your guidance counselor, who should be able to advise you regarding any additional steps that need to be completed before beginning the online course.
