Homeschooling Alternatives and Socialization

At K12, we understand how important it is for students to grow and succeed both academically and socially. That’s why we place an emphasis on providing social activities and clubs for online students.

Social Activities for K12-Powered Students

Homeschooling and socialization is a common concern among parents regarding at home learning. It can be difficult to find clubs for homeschoolers that allow students to meet and interact with peers in their area. And if your student is completely new to online learning, you may be worried about the adjustment, particularly in regards to socialization.

K12-powered schools make a concerted effort to provide students with social experiences to promote healthy development. Students enrolled in K12-powered schools can participate in both virtual and in-person* activities like field trips, school-based clubs, and other extracurriculars. Plus, online forums and discussions allow students to form communities around shared interests with peers from across the country.
