Discover the K12 Difference

One size does not fit all when it comes to learning. One student may thrive in a collaborative, one-to-one tutoring environment. Another may benefit from the independence that comes with attending class and completing work solo, free from distractions. We get it.

That’s why K12 programs are designed to offer a personalized approach for every student through a variety of education experiences.

Ways to Learn With K12

No matter how you want to learn or what kind of school experience you’re looking for, K12 has an option that works for your family.

Public School

Online public school is tuition-free. Most provide honors and AP® options and support for complex needs, while all give students the flexibility to advance at their own pace.

Public school

A student’s day might include an interactive math class, followed by a break for sports or to talk with a classmate about a shared hobby, then working with a parent to manage their time for upcoming assignments.

Private School

Tuition-based online private school can be a great option for those who need even more flexibility. Lower student-teacher ratios mean learners receive more one-to-one instruction.

Private school

Like their public school peers, private school students also have countless ways to explore interests and career paths. While some private schools are faith-based, all provide advanced placement and honors courses.


The K12 curriculum is designed to supplement and strengthen existing homeschool programs and the online public school options can be great for homeschool families.
