Our Call To Action
In 1999, K12 answered a call voiced by many parents whose children’s needs were not being met in their neighborhood schools or by traditional education models. Parents expressed their angst—their children were bored by the pace of the traditional classroom, left behind by the pace of the classroom, or just getting lost in the shuffle. Traditional brick and mortar schools work for many children, but they restrict many others for a variety of reasons.
That call to action spurred K12’s mission—To provide any child access to exceptional curriculum and tools that enable him or her to maximize his or her success in life, regardless of geographic, financial, or demographic circumstance.
K12 is a leader, providing individualized, one-to-one learning solutions to students from kindergarten through high school across the country. From Connecticut to California, these solutions have literally changed lives and opened up possibility for many children. Our biggest fans continue to be parents who are seeking to tap into their children's unique potential and who have seen what can happen when children work at the right pace and with the tools, approaches, and content that make learning come alive.
How We Work
K¹² offers outstanding, highly effective curriculum that enables mastery of core concepts and skills for all kinds of minds. The minds that are superbly gifted--or that are gifted in some areas and struggling in others. The minds that need to use hands to learn on some days, and eyes or ears on others. The minds that move faster or slower than others. The minds that are connected to bodies that need to run off steam periodically, or that are medically unable to attend a physical school. All kinds of minds, not just the best and brightest—not just the ones that are easy to teach.
A diverse group of children achieve mastery through a combination of individualized learning approaches, passionate teacher engagement, adherence to the best educational research that has been conducted over the past several decades about the ways young minds really work, and rich, engaging content.
It's all about removing the barriers that keep children from reaching their true, individual potential. Each year, we help tens of thousands of students reach out toward their true personal possibility.
