Online 9th Grade
Online Ninth Grade with K12
Start your student's high school years off right.
As students enter high school, they become focused on their postgraduation plans in the workforce or college. As ninth graders begin to chart a course for their future, a K12-powered school can help put them on a path toward success.
Traditional education models don't always provide an environment for your child to learn and grow in their own way. At K12, we believe that the learning environment should support each student and his or her unique learning style.

The K12 curriculum for high school students builds foundational knowledge while nurturing students' passions with a variety of engaging course opportunities. Online ninth grade programs offer hands-on, exploratory, and creative learning for students at every level.
How is online ninth grade the same as in a traditional public school?
Great question! Just like their peers in traditional public schools, students attend online public school tuition-free* and follow a traditional school-year calendar. State-certified teachers provide instruction, and students earn a high school diploma upon graduation.

Online ninth grade students can expect a personalized education experience tailored to their goals, strengths, and challenges.

Online ninth grade students will learn foundational topics like math, science, English, and history in addition to career-focused electives and credit recovery if needed.
