What do K12-powered schools and homeschooling in Iowa have in common?

A successful education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Students and parents can experience the best of both worlds by combining the structure and support of traditional public school with the convenience of homeschooling in Iowa.

Students are empowered to take charge of their learning, and parents are actively involved to help along the way in both settings. Learning happens from the comfort of home with regularly scheduled, live, online classes and offline activities to reinforce course material.

Unlike online homeschool in Iowa, K12-powered online schools provide the curriculum. Personalized learning plans allow Iowa-licensed teachers to guide progress and tailor teaching to student needs. The curriculum combines engaging online lessons with hands-on learning materials.** Activities like art projects and science experiments complement online lessons and provide a new way to learn and master concepts.

K12-powered schools follow a traditional school calendar; adhere to state testing, school accountability, and attendance policies; and graduates earn a high school diploma.

As you explore alternatives to homeschooling in Iowa, learn more about how online learning works to see if a K12-powered education is right for your child.

Is online school in Iowa a good fit for my student?

A typical day includes regularly scheduled, live online classes taught by Iowa-licensed teachers. In the younger grades, curriculum is mastery based, allowing students to work at the pace best suited for their learning process. As students progress through middle school and high school, the program is grade-based and students must keep on pace with the class.

Online and offline coursework and activities help reinforce lessons and allow students to learn in an interactive and engaging way.

Similar to homeschooling in Iowa, parents and guardians can play an active, important role in their child’s education. As your child’s Learning Coach, you or another responsible adult you choose, will help keep your student on track with assignments and coursework, communicate with teachers, provide motivation, and more.

Students enrolled in K12-powered online school can participate in extracurricular activities, such as online clubs and social pursuits, to interact with their peers.§ These social opportunities are an important part of a well-rounded education.

Explore the K12 resources available for both students and parents to help families succeed with online learning.
