Your Homeschool Questions, Answered

In traditional homeschooling, parents choose the curriculum and hold primary responsibility for instructing their children. K12 provides many options for home-based education, one of which is online homeschooling. But not all of those options are the same as traditional homeschooling, where parents choose curriculum and hold primary responsibility for instructing their children. Our wide-ranging homeschooling curriculum is available for purchase. We also offer full-time, teacher-supported education options, such as K12-powered, tuition-free public schools, which share the same requirements and benefits of traditional brick-and-mortar public schools.

K12 supplies the online curriculum for several types of learning models:

  • Tuition-free public schools, available in most states, operate like other public schools, and students must meet state requirements for attendance, eligibility, and testing. 
  • K12-powered private schools are available to students from all over the country and beyond. These tuition-based schools offer additional flexibility and different levels of support; several states offer voucher and scholarship programs to make enrollment free to the parent.
  •  K12 is also a leading homeschool curriculum provider for families who want to supplement their child’s education with additional courses.

K12 makes all of its online courses available for individual purchase, provides one-on-one tutoring services on an as-needed basis, and offers solutions for adult education and school districts.

As a Cognia-accredited corporation, K12 meets the highest standards of educational management. Cognia is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing excellence in education worldwide through accreditation, research, and professional services. Cognia-accredited organizations share a unified, clear, and powerful accreditation process designed to help schools continuously improve.

Additionally, many K12-powered schools are accredited by a wide variety of respected accreditation bodies, including:

  • Northwest Accreditation Commission
  • Western Association of Schools and Colleges
  • NCA Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement
  • National Collegiate Athletic Association
