Is Online High School Right for Your Child?
Online high school empowers your child to take charge of their learning. K12 combines tried-and-true teaching methods with 21st century technology for a unique and engaging learning experience.
K12 high school empowers you and your child to choose a curriculum that works best for your schedule, lifestyle, and your child’s needs. Through their courses, students can explore career interests and find a post-graduation path that suits them. They can also choose from a wide range of online courses, including on-level, required, credit recovery, honors, and Advanced Placement options.
Meet Your All-Star Learning Team
As a parent, you play an active role by partnering with your child and their teachers — while K12 provides resources, advice, and support through an online parent community. Discover how your student can reach their full potential through inspired teaching and personalized learning.
The Learning Coach’s Role
Every student works with a Learning Coach — a parent, guardian, or trusted adult — for support, guidance, and motivation while they grow as independent learners. Learning Coaches typically spend 1-3 hours per day supporting their student, depending on the child’s needs.
The Teacher’s Role
Students learn from state-certified teachers who are passionate about and trained in online learning methods. Educators lead live online classes, monitor progress and attendance, and offer help sessions and office hours to ensure your student has access to personalized, one-on-one attention.
The Student’s Role
While students have the flexibility to complete most assignments online in a way that meets their unique needs, K12 also offers opportunities for in-person learning. Students are empowered to work with greater independence at this level, but still have regular classes with teachers and peers.
