Three Ways Online Clubs Benefit Kids

Virtual clubs help guide kids toward confidence, emotional intelligence, and academic success. From STEM to the arts, K12 offers over 50 clubs that ignite creativity and enhance learning.


The social side of online learning is just as important as the academic side. Socialization helps students build interpersonal and collaborative skills while developing a strong sense of community.

K12 makes it easy for students to socialize with exciting online and in-person clubs, events, and field trips.

Socialization is just as important for Learning Coaches as it is for students. That’s why we have resources like the Learning Coach community where fellow Learning Coaches can find community and get support.
