K12-Powered Online Schools in Wisconsin are More Individualized

K12 powers online school options in Wisconsin that are positive alternatives to a one-size-fits-all education. By offering personalized learning that includes the familiar strengths of brick-and-mortar public schooling with the accessibility of virtual learning, we work to ignite a student’s love for learning.

WI Online Schools Vs. Traditional Public Schools

K12-powered online schools in Wisconsin are like traditional public schooling in the following ways:

  • Tuition-free enrollment*
  • Instruction and academic support from Wisconsin-licensed teachers
  • A school year schedule similar to traditional schools throughout Wisconsin
  • In-person social opportunities such as field trips

How does learning in a K12 powered online school environment work?

K12-powered online public school students in Wisconsin receive a personalized education experience that includes:

  • K12’s high-quality, engaging online curriculum designed to inspire and challenge young minds
  • Live, online classes with Wisconsin-licensed teachers
  • Support from a Learning Coach, usually a parent or other responsible adult
  • Social connections through a variety of online and in-person opportunities

How does a student’s learning experience change in different grade levels?

For grades K–5, the curriculum is mastery based, allowing students to discover the ways they learn best, and it includes hands-on learning opportunities away from the computer. The Learning Coach helps the student stay on track with their learning schedule and communicates with teachers via email and phone as needed.

As students transition to grades 6–8, they become more independent and learn to monitor their own schedule while still working with their Learning Coach for support. Curriculum for grades 6–8 includes online and various levels of hands-on learning.

In grades 9–12, students communicate with their teachers, manage their schedules with minimal Learning Coach support, and begin considering their postgraduation goals with counselors. The online high school curriculum includes various levels of core courses and a broad selection of electives.
