Expat, Foreign Service, Overseas

Families who raise their children overseas face unique challenges.

These range from frequent moves, different cultures, transitions from one school to another and a scarcity of educational services for special needs children. A priority for K12 is the educational development of children from mobile families.

Options to Fit Your Needs

The K12 online learning options consist of the fully accredited K12 International Academy, plus individual courses available for home study or as a supplement to traditional schooling.

Our patented, award-winning system for virtual schooling combines dynamic, online lessons with a rich array of offline materials, books and resources to make learning come alive.

Here are just a few reasons why K12 is ideal for your young student:

  • The K12 online learning program can travel with your child, worldwide, to anywhere there is an Internet connection – including back into the U.S.
  • There is never a wait list with monthly start dates
  • K12 International Academy students graduate with a prestigious US diploma
  • Our K–8 curriculum is mastery-based, enabling students to progress at their own pace.
  • High school students can choose from more than 105 teacher-guided courses—including honors and AP®, as well as electives.
  • We offer multiple levels of world language courses in up to five languages.
  • Our courses meet or exceed state standards.

International Schools Are Turning to K12

Because of the highly effective way we've delivered individualized learning solutions over one million times, around the world, we are now partnering with many outstanding International Schools to create new opportunities for student success. These partner schools include:

Benefits of Partnering with K12

If you are part of an International School, here are some of the benefits offered by a K12 partnership:

  • Students who want to take courses your school can't afford to offer, including Honors, AP®, world language, and unique electives
  • Families who seek a more individualized approach
  • Students who need a more flexible schedule
  • Students who want a chance to earn a U.S. diploma through K12's accredited online school
  • Are you on a waiting list of students? Your school may be able to get you started with K12's outstanding curriculum.
  • If you are geographically remote, you can explore an approach with your school in which some courses are delivered online, at home, via K12.

From individual online courses, to blended classroom models, to full-time online learning programs, K12 can help extend your school's offering in a variety of ways.
