K12.com is a website for the K12 organization, who says their mission is to provide any child access to exceptional curriculum and tools that will enable them to maximize their success in life, regardless of circumstances.
K12 was founded in 1999 due to the fact that many parents felt their children’s needs were not being met by traditional educational models, or that their children were left behind in the classroom, or lost in the shuffle.
In response, this organization was founded with the intention of developing a wide range of exceptional curriculum that could be molded to any student’s needs, regardless of age, from Kindergarten through High School.
According to their website, this organization helps tens of thousands of students reach their personal possibility each year, whether it is through a local public school system or through individual products they have for sale.
If you are interested in seeing whether or not there is a K12 school in your area, simply go to K12.com and use their interactive map to see what schools are available in your state and in your specific regional area.
Each state will have different schools and opportunities, with benefits and complaints individual to that school. In addition, you will want to check the individual school to ensure that it meets state guidelines for being accredited.
K12 schools are virtual schools, schools which exist online. The majority of work being done will be between online teachers and your student through a computer. Since these virtual schools are considered part of the public school system, these programs are essentially free. Pricing for individual products on the other hand will vary.
Due to the virtual nature of this school program, parents who wish to have their children participate must be able to provide a home school environment. Parents who need it can also inquire about help with the cost of the high speed internet required for their program.
