Is online school at home a good fit for my student?
Families have different requirements when determining what works for them in their education choices. A successful education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Stride K12-powered online schools in Minnesota are designed to offer students a high-quality tuition-free* education that helps them thrive.
Enrolled students attend regularly scheduled, live online classes taught by Minnesota-licensed teachers. Online and offline coursework and activities help reinforce lessons and allow students to learn in an interactive and engaging way. In the younger grades, curriculum is mastery based, allowing students to work at the pace best suited for their learning process. As students progress through middle school and high school, the program is grade-based and students must keep on pace with the class.
As with homeschooling in Minnesota, parents can play an active, important role in their child's education. As your child's Learning Coach, you (or another responsible adult you choose) will help keep your student on track with assignments and coursework, communicate with teachers, provide motivation, and more.
