Freedom of Choice in Texas Public High Schools
Did you know there are high schools in your state that allow students to learn, grow, and succeed in a supportive environment that accommodates their academic needs and unique learning style? K12-powered online public high schools in Texas offer students the benefits of traditional schooling in a safe online setting to help them prepare for success in our rapidly changing world.
How do the K12-powered online high schools in Texas compare to a traditional school?
Texas's K12-powered virtual high schools share many similarities with a traditional high school. Like the brick-and-mortar model, online high schools powered by K12 follow a traditional academic calendar and provide a high-quality public school education—and they're tuition-free.*
The big difference is students enrolled in a K12-powered online high school attend classes wherever there's an internet connection, meaning your student can learn in a distraction-free environment that can help them reach their potential.
How does a K12-powered online public high school in Texas work?
Texas's K12-powered virtual high school students attend live classes via the Online School platform. Texas-certified instructors use this platform to host lectures and discussions, show videos, and answer questions. The K12-powered online high schools in Texas offer additional support via counseling and online tools so students can chart their path for the future. The Learning Coach, usually a parent or other responsible adult, also typically spends about 1 to 2 hours each day providing oversight for their student. And K12's engaging online curriculum provides interactive learning experiences that can help prepare students for college or give them a taste of a possible future career.
