School that's Similar but Different

Enrollment is tuition-free*

What makes the K12-powered virtual public school in North Carolina different is K12's interactive online curriculum for grades K through 12, which includes engaging lessons in core subjects as well as art, music, and world languages. Combined with one-to-one support from North Carolina-licensed teachers, your student will be on the way to becoming a self-motivated learner with the ability to solve problems and take ownership of their learning.
Public School with a Personalized Approach
At K12, we believe an individually tailored education experience can help students make the most of their potential. Our personalized approach begins with the Individualized Learning Plan, which identifies a student's strengths and areas that need more support. For example, if a student excels at math, they may qualify to take courses at a higher grade level but stay at their normal grade level in other subjects.
What is learning like in the K12-powered online school in North Carolina?
Students attend live, online, teacher-led classes and work on daily coursework through the Online School platform. In grades K–5, the online curriculum includes supplemental hands-on learning materials. In grades 6–12, most learning is done online with fewer hands-on materials. Students begin to take more responsibility for their schedule and start focusing on postsecondary goals with support from counselors.
Throughout grades K–12, the Learning Coach (a parent or another responsible adult) offers daily support by:
Helping the student stay on their learning schedule
Communicating with teachers
