With so many options for your child’s education, why should you consider K12 as your solution? What makes us different from all the rest? We’re glad you asked. Here’s why:
Because We’ve Got Your Back
With K12, you’re not alone. K12 partners with your family—and you are empowered to support and guide your child in the way that works best for them.
Thanks to our innovative Parent Portal, you’ll gain full transparency into what your child is learning and how they’re performing. You can regularly interact with your child’s teachers, setting them up for lifelong success and a love of learning.
Because You Can Trust Us
We've earned it! K12 is a leader in online learning, having provided the highest standards of education to more than 2 million students. Our students graduate from a fully accredited program and learn from state-certified teachers specifically trained in online education.
No more useless, outdated lessons. At K12, we built our curriculum with the help of an experienced team of specialists and lesson developers. Academic courses are designed to meet the needs of students based on their age and skill set while covering relevant learning standards in an interactive and engaging way.
Because It's Time to Rethink School
Learning doesn't have to mean waking up at 6 AM, an hour-long bus ride, living in an advantaged zip code, or dealing with bullies the way it can be at in-person, brick-and-mortar schools. Rethink school with a leader in online education for more than two decades.
Because Our Platform Is Built for Personalized Learning
The K12 online platform is designed to deliver engaging classes, support students, and keep things organized for parents. You can find school—schedules, lessons, grades—all in one spot.

Because Parents and Students Love Us
Because Students Don't Miss Out on Anything
Online learning doesn't mean missing out on the fun stuff. Students at K12-powered schools have plenty of opportunities to engage with other students and get social. We offer field trips, in-person classes, meet-ups, and more!
You can find a club or extracurricular program for all interests. Students can engage in healthy competition through our e-sports league, spend the summer in our nursing, coding, or gaming camps, and compete with other students in areas such as art, spelling, and photography. We even offer in-person and virtual events for graduation and prom!
Because We Are for All Types of Students
Whether your child is an athlete, advanced learner, homeschooler, military kid, career- or college-bound—or any situation in between—we're here to meet their needs. K12 accommodates a variety of learning styles, and we are committed to helping your child graduate, no matter what.
If your child needs extra time to master concepts or if they're ready to go at full speed, we can accommodate them. We help students who are behind on credits get back on track. We personalize our learning for each student and every type of student. We've got your back.
A Day in the Life of an Online Student
Because We Are a Safe Option
Leave the stress of brick-and-mortar schools behind. School bullies can make your child feel unsafe and make it difficult to focus on academics. Add on the social pressures of middle and high school, the fears of COVID-19, and other safety concerns, and your student may find themselves in a treacherous learning environment.
K12 is committed to your child's well-being. We provide a safe alternative where students can be themselves and focus on their curriculum in the security of their own home. Our school safety resources include information on socialization, mental health, and anti-bullying.
Because We Deliver Results
Each year, up to two million students leave school before graduating. Not at K12. We ensure your student has what they need to succeed and champion them every step of the way. K12 guarantees graduation for all eligible students with the help of personalized graduation plans, individual counseling, and excellence in teaching and online support.
With our graduation guarantee, students can step into their future and prepare for what's next. A high school diploma gives students the benefit of better-paying jobs, engaging careers, and the option to attend college.
