As more and more families seek educational choices beyond their neighborhood schools, it’s important that they have access to options that provide personalized approaches to meet their children’s unique needs. K12, a leader in online and blended learning for K-12 students, recognized the need to remove barriers to a great education and committed to improve educational options and drive student success. K12 researched the standards and best practices that guide high-performing schools and developed a plan to replicate them. The goal was to increase K12 powered school performance and work to close the achievement gap between students at K12 powered schools and the state student average performance on assessments by quickly propelling student academic growth. In an effort to facilitate improvement, K12 developed the Academic Excellence Framework (AEF).
Actions speak louder than words, but numbers can show the magnitude of those actions. At K12 our actions will always focus on fulfilling our mission of removing barriers to a great education by helping students unlock their full potential through inspired teaching and personalized learning.

Powered by Technology
Technology will be part of every student’s tomorrow, so we are making it part of every one of our student’s education today. Our innovative approach integrates technology to offer personalized learning options to prepare our students for a career or college education.
We believe every student should have access to an education that enables them to succeed, and all parents deserve the equal opportunity to choose the best school for their child’s needs. K12 helps ensure that geography, wealth, or personal circumstance do not limit a student’s opportunity to thrive.
K12 works with more than 5,000 state-certified teachers who are the heart and soul of our commitment to student success. Through one-on-one instruction, chat sessions, and family phone calls, they develop an intimate understanding of each of their student’s needs and K12 provides the tools they need to inspire students.
Through core courses and electives, K12 offers students a personalized education while allowing them to explore career areas of interest and preparing them for their next steps—whether that's college, a career, or both.
