Is online school a good fit for my student?
A successful education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. K12-powered online schools combine the support and structure of traditional public school with the convenience of learning from home or wherever there’s an internet connection.
Students enrolled in K12-powered online schools in Colorado attend regularly scheduled online class sessions and complete coursework and activities aligned with their skill and grade level. Your student will also have the opportunity to complete coursework and activities away from the computer screen. Colorado-licensed teachers lead online class sessions, teach curriculum, and serve as a resource for students and parents.
How it works
As with homeschooling in Colorado, a parent or another responsible adult plays an active, important role in the student’s education as the Learning Coach. This person works to keep students on track with assignments and coursework, communicate with teachers, provide motivation, and more.
How do K12-powered schools and homeschooling in Colorado compare?
Families can maintain the benefits of homeschooling in Colorado in both settings. K12-powered students can attend class and complete coursework from the comfort and safety of home, or wherever there’s an internet connection. Similar to homeschooling in Colorado, K12-powered students take charge of their learning and parents are actively involved.
Unlike online homeschool in Colorado, K12-powered schools provide the curriculum. In the younger grades, the curriculum is mastery-based, allowing students to work at the pace best suited for their learning process. Students experience grade-based curriculum in middle school and high school.
The structure of traditional public school combined with the convenience of schooling at home serves as an alternative to homeschooling in Colorado. K12-powered schools adhere to state testing, school accountability, and attendance policies, just as brick-and-mortar schools do, and graduates earn a high school diploma.
Consider the benefits and support of an online program when thinking about how to school at home for your family. Learn more about how online learning works to see if a K12-powered education is right for your child.
