Sponsor K12 gets kids thinking big.
Like understanding the science behind a tennis player’s overhand smash. Or appreciating the pure poetry in motion of a figure skater's double-axel.

That’s thanks to K12 and our award-winning curriculum, individualized to bring learning alive—be it science, language arts, and more—one child at a time. Every subject is delivered online, with hands-on experiments, plus books and support from expert teachers.

Whatever your sport, at K12 we know young athletes need an education that accommodates intense practice and travel schedules, so we provide a balanced, completely portable education for grades K-12.
