K12-Powered Online Middle School for Minnesota Students

Middle school is an important time for students as they explore their interests, master topics across subjects, and prepare for new challenges. Online middle schools powered by K12 help students establish building blocks for success through personalized learning.

If your family is looking for an alternative to traditional school, or a more personalized approach to learning, K12 has the solution. Learn how K12-powered tuition-free* online middle schools in Minnesota help students succeed in their own way.

How does Minnesota online middle school powered by K12 work?

There are many similarities and differences between online middle schools in Minnesota and a traditional school setting. Students are taught by Minnesota-licensed teachers, follow a traditional school calendar, and can participate in extracurricular activities that connect them with peers.

Students participate in scheduled, live online classes from home or wherever there’s an internet connection. Lessons are reinforced through offline assignments that are completed independently or in a small group of peers. Students can also seek support from their Learning Coach—a parent or other responsible adult who gives support, guidance, and motivation. As students progress through middle school, they’ll take on more responsibility for their education, preparing them for the more rigorous academic setting of high school.

The structure and support of traditional school combined with the convenience of virtual learning may be a good fit for your family. Learn more about the resources available to students and Learning Coaches that can ease the transition to online learning.
