With the power of K12’s 5th grade homeschool curriculum, your student will experience an education that fosters curiosity and creativity while preparing them for middle school. Whether you choose K12 curriculum for homeschooling or choose to enroll in a K12-powered online school, your child can continue on the path toward becoming an independent learner.

How does online homeschool work?

Online homeschool follows the same basic structure and must meet the same educational standards as a conventional brick-and-mortar school. With homeschool, however, parents or other designated adults take on the role of teacher, guiding their student through the K12 5th grade homeschool curriculum. Through pre-planned lessons and learning initiatives, homeschooled students have access to a strong education.

Our curriculum enables parents and guardians to tailor the pace of instruction and meet the individualized learning needs of unique students. As children approach challenging topics, they can take more time to grasp the concept. With subjects they understand more quickly, they can move on. Parents are also able to quickly intervene if their student starts to fall behind.

How does online public school work?

Families who want to have greater involvement with their child’s education and greater flexibility in the school day, while still having their child learn from state-certified teachers, often choose to do public school at home. K12-powered tuition-free online schools combine the engaging K12 curriculum with the support and structure of public school—all from the comfort and safety of home. Families of K12-powered schools adhere to the schedule and pacing of their online school.

What are my responsibilities as an adult homeschool provider?

Choosing to homeschool your student means you will step into the role of teacher. The 5th grade homeschool curriculum you purchase from K12 includes all the lesson plans and activities you need to complete each subject. As your student’s instructor, your involvement plays a crucial role in their success.

For students enrolled in a K12-powered online school option, parents or other responsible adults act as Learning Coaches and assist with lessons and online classes, which are taught by state-certified teachers.
