Middle school is a time when students start to expand their independent learning as they hone their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Families looking for an alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar schools will love the one-to-one attention and hands-on activities found within the K12 6th grade homeschool curriculum. Families seeking a more structured online school experience with state-certified teachers and social opportunities will want to explore available K12-powered online schools.

How does online homeschool work?

Full-time online homeschool for middle school students follows the same basic structure and must meet the same educational standards as a traditional brick-and-mortar school. Homeschooling, however, delivers unique, personalized attention that parents or other trusted adults provide. Homeschooling families are responsible for selecting their own curriculum and stepping into the role of instructor, guiding students through their online lessons and interactive activities while helping them stay on track.

Students begin to become more self-supported in their learning when they enter middle school, allowing for more independent study and practice time. Through pre-planned lessons and an intuitive, easy-to-use online platform, parents and students alike can see learning come alive. The K12 6th grade homeschool curriculum is designed to foster curiosity and spark an interest in new topics.

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?

The decision to homeschool your middle school student means you or another trusted adult will take on the role of teacher. The purchased K12 6th grade homeschool curriculum includes the full collection of lesson plans and activities you need to complete each subject. Your involvement plays a crucial role in your student’s success.

With the one-to-one instruction afforded to homeschooled students, parents can tailor the learning pace to their student’s needs. The flexibility of the daily schedule enables you to meet the needs of your student and your family in a way that is not always possible with a conventional brick-and-mortar school.

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