How does online twelfth grade work?
If your student requires a more individualized learning approach, K12-powered online twelfth grade could be the solution.
Students attend online public school tuition-free* and follow the traditional school year, just like their peers in the brick-and-mortar school setting. Curriculum is taught by state-certified teachers, and your student can earn a high school diploma upon graduation. The difference lies in the approach.
Your student can complete online twelfth grade lessons and coursework wherever there is an internet connection. Lessons are taught in a combination of hands-on, exploratory, problem-solving, and creative learning—personalized for their individual learning style.
With a focus on engaging coursework, your student not only learns the material, but they build the communication, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills they'll need after graduation.
Online twelfth grade powered by K12 will help your high school student build the groundwork for a successful future postgraduation, whether that's entering the workforce or attending college.
High school is not only a time to develop problem-solving skills and textbook knowledge, but also a time to socialize with peers. Students enrolled in online twelfth grade can take part in clubs, extracurricular activities, and field trips to meet other students and build friendships.
