Personalized Learning Program
K12-powered learning at the online public school program in Missouri includes:

Teacher-led instruction: State-certified teachers tailor instruction to students' needs and track ongoing progress.

Social opportunities: In-person field trips and extracurricular activities, plus online clubs, bring students together.
How It Works
If you're a parent who wants to be involved in your student's learning, you may find K12-powered online schooling in Missouri is a good fit. As your student's "Learning Coach," you help them stay on schedule, record daily attendance, and communicate with teachers. Daily coursework is done via computer through the Online School platform—where students work on lessons and attend live, online classes.
Grades K–5: The mastery-based online lessons include hands-on learning opportunities away from the computer. The Learning Coach spends about 4 to 6 hours per day working with your student on lessons.
Grades 6–8: Students begin to monitor their own learning schedule, but you continue to offer support for about 1 to 3 hours per day.
Grades 9–12: High schoolers take greater responsibility for their schedule, communicate with teachers, and focus on postsecondary goals. You'll support your student about 1 to 3 hours per day.
*Families do not pay tuition for a student to attend an online public school. Common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided. Our enrollment consultants can help address your technological and computer questions and needs.
