If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar schools, homeschooling with K12 curriculum offers a great solution. Many families also choose K12-powered online public schools, combining some of the benefits of homeschool with the structure of a school system. Families can take control of their child’s education and give them a strong start.

How does online homeschool work?

Traditional homeschooling allows families to provide their 1st graders with a level of individualized attention that’s simply not possible in a conventional school system. Parents or guardians select the curriculum and take responsibility for the education of their child.

Homeschooling families typically choose to follow a standard school year calendar, although the pace of instruction is up to them. When using the K12 1st grade homeschool curriculum, you will lead your student through the work at a pace that’s comfortable for them. You can help them through any challenging topics or work faster through concepts they grasp quickly. This allows your student to learn in the ways that work best for them, leading to greater academic success and a deeper love for learning.

How does online public school work?

Families who want to have greater involvement with their child’s education and greater flexibility in the school day, while still having their child learn from state-certified teachers, often choose to do public school at home. K12-powered tuition-free online schools combine the engaging K12 curriculum with the support and structure of public school—all from the comfort and safety of home. Families of K12-powered schools adhere to the schedule and pacing of their online school.

What are my responsibilities as an adult homeschool provider?

Homeschool relies on a parent or another chosen responsible adult to guide the student through the curriculum. Your involvement is critical to the success of your student in an online homeschooled environment. Choosing to homeschool your student means you will step into the role of teacher.

For 1st grade students, parents or guardians take an active role and spend the majority of the school day with their student as they walk them through their 1st grade homeschool curriculum.

For students who enroll in a K12-powered online school option, parents or other responsible adults act as Learning Coaches and assist them with lessons and online classes which are taught by state-certified teachers.

How do homeschooled students socialize?

Schooling at home doesn’t mean students will be disconnected. Social interaction is a key component of a quality, well-rounded education. Homeschooling families frequently organize their own local communities, and when you choose a K12-powered school, your student has access to a multitude of social activities and events. These activities may be virtual or in person, allowing students to connect with peers and build lasting friendships. Some events may include:

Local clubs | Field trips | Extracurricular activities
