1 IMAGINE never again having to deal with an interruption in your children s education, no matter where you are stationed. INDIVIDUALIZED LEARNING FOR ANY CHILD, ANYWHERE.

2 THE K 12 PROGRAM ALLOWED US TO BECOME CLOSER AS A FAMILY. HOLLY, WA

3 DON T LEAVE YOUR KIDS SCHOOL BEHIND WHEN YOU RELOCATE. PACK IT UP AND TAKE IT WITH YOU! Kids thrive academically in a supportive learning environment that s focused on their strengths and needs. Unfortunately, frequent relocations can make this an even bigger challenge. Online education with K 12 is giving thousands of military families a way to bring consistency to their children s schooling. If a family relocates any place in the world, they can take a first-rate American education with them wherever they go. Your child is at the center of everything we do at K 12. As America s leader in K 12 online education, it is our goal to provide a consistent, top-quality education for all kids, no matter where they are or how often they move. We have multiple schooling options to meet your family s needs: ONLINE PUBLIC SCHOOLS Tuition-free statewide public schools in 33 U.S. states and D.C. with the award-winning K 12 curriculum and professional teacher support, accessible from anywhere there s an Internet connection PRIVATE SCHOOL OPTIONS Diploma-granting options, from kindergarten through high school, with a significant military tuition discount INDIVIDUAL COURSES More than 300 courses available for direct purchase, with or without teacher support, with special savings for military families

4 EARLY LEARNING PROGRAMS* EMBARK 12 Prepare your child for kindergarten with our EmbarK¹² program for ages 3 to 6, providing flexible learning experiences that engage young minds a fun, innovative approach to learning that your child will love. You can choose from EmbarK 12 Comprehensive, which includes a combination of online and hands-on activities, or EmbarK 12 Online for a more independent, self-guided experience. Activities help develop early skills in mathematical reasoning, basic literacy, scientific observation, and investigation, fostering your children s natural eagerness to learn through exploration giving them a solid foundation for kindergarten. NOODLEVERSE LANGUAGE ARTS Noodleverse Language Arts is an online reading and writing skills practice and enrichment program that allows kids to work independently to become more confident, competent readers and writers. Whether they re early readers, diving into the world of spelling, or taking the first steps toward creative writing, kids can practice their newly acquired skills in four* grade-specific levels (K 3), with robust content from the award-winning K 12 Language Arts curriculum. Noodleverse gives kids reading and writing practice across a variety of topics: Phonics Spelling Vocabulary Literature and Comprehension Writing Skills Handwriting Critical Language Skills Practice Language Arts Resources Other Noodleverse subjects are currently in development. *Available for direct purchase only PAGE 02 K 12 IS A PROUD SUPPORTER OF MILITARY FAMILIES

5 ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PROGRAM In the early years, young children need to explore, discover, and learn new things. K 12 s academic programs for grades K 5 tap into this natural inquisitiveness with courses that truly engage young minds and establish a solid foundation for future learning. Four core subjects language arts, math, science, and social studies plus music and art World language options beginning in third grade A wealth of hands-on materials: storybooks, science kits, math manipulatives, and more Adaptive reading remediation and math course series Weekly suggested lesson plans (depending on which schooling option you choose) MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM When kids reach middle school, they re starting to think and act more on their own. Our programs for grades 6 8 reflect this growing independence by challenging students with more sophisticated concepts and new levels of critical thinking. As with our elementary school program, each grade includes the four core subjects, along with music, art, and world languages, all complemented by hands-on materials. In middle school, students are challenged to examine more in-depth topics, such as: English: Literary interpretation, analytical writing, and oral communication skills Math: Problem-solving skills in geometry, algebra, probability, and statistics Science: Earth, physical, and life science at standard or advanced levels Social studies: Inter-connected surveys in American and world history from prehistoric to modern times World languages: Competency development in Spanish, French, German, Latin, or Chinese Music: Exploration of famous composers and their works Art: Studies of great works of art, and the artists and cultures behind them Middle school students also have access to an Advanced Learner program that challenges young, talented minds and turns education up a few notches.

6 HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM Today s traditional high school experience works for many kids, but for kids who move around a lot, the usual model may not be ideal. Our high school program is wrapped with counseling, choices, community, and online tools to help teens identify their goals, chart their own paths, and enjoy their journeys. High school students receive: An Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) that is continually monitored and adjusted as needed More than 150 online courses in multiple levels, from Core to Advanced Placement to Credit Recovery A broad selection of electives such as Journalism, Web Design, Entrepreneurship, and Anthropology Certified high school teachers who provide direct instruction via online sessions A dedicated support team of guidance counselors, teachers, and advisors Dozens of online clubs covering a wide variety of interests The K 12 high school program was designed to help students find their own path and follow it to success after school whether that s in college, a vocational program, or straight to a career. And it works! K 12 graduates have been accepted at hundreds of respected post-secondary schools, including Princeton, Stanford, Cornell, Duke, Clemson, and the U.S. Air Force Academy. HELP ALONG THE WAY YOU RE NOT IN THIS ALONE! Online education is a family affair, requiring a daily level of commitment on the part of the student and the parent. As with anything worth doing, it s not easy, and we recognize that it takes pretty significant time and effort. To help you and your child get the most out of a K 12 education, we offer plenty of help for families who are new to online education. The K 12 National Parent Network offers a large selection of workshops, a parent hotline, clubs, and live online sessions on topics ranging from setting up your learning space, time management, parenting strategies, summer learning, and much more. Sessions are offered year round, and new topics are added all the time. You can do this, and you have a huge, supportive community to help. PAGE 04 K 12 IS A PROUD SUPPORTER OF MILITARY FAMILIES

7 K 12 SCHOOLING OPTIONS The K 12 program is offered through public schools in more than two-thirds of the states and the District of Columbia, through private schools in all 50 states and around the world, and through individual courses for direct purchase for independent homeschooling or supplemental learning. TUITION-FREE ONLINE PUBLIC SCHOOLING K 12 online public schools offer full-time, tuition-free public schooling that is individualized to fit your child s learning needs. Parents who choose K 12 online public schools appreciate the flexibility and individualization that s only possible with an online school. Online learning takes place primarily in the home, with the guidance and support of professional, highly qualified teachers. Most K 12 online public schools employ a full administrative staff, including guidance counselors and other school leaders to support your child. Students in these schools must adhere to the same state testing, school accountability, and attendance policies of the traditional brick-and-mortar schools in your state. K 12 parents make a commitment to take an active role as Learning Coach, facilitating progress through daily lessons in grades K 8, and playing a supportive, mentoring role in helping high school students stay on track.

9 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Will my child interact with other children? All K12 families are part of a committed, supportive, international online community. Your child can participate in clubs covering a wide variety of interests, and take advantage of support groups specifically designed with military children in mind. Many K12 online public schools offer field trips and other in-person activities, giving students a chance to combine social and educational opportunities. An independent study of full-time K12 programs found that online students social skills were at least on par with if not higher than those of students in traditional schools.* What happens if we move? In most cases, if you move, school moves with you. The K12 curriculum is consistent across all options, whether you re in a public online partner school, one of our private schools, or using K12 independently. This provides continuity in your child s education and eliminates the need for course content repetition or exclusion from Honors or AP courses. The K12 global community also comes with you when you move. If my child is enrolled in a K12 online public school, what happens if I get deployed and my child is placed with a designated guardian? Will we have to change schools? Students enrolled in a K12 online public school can usually remain enrolled in the same school, with the same teacher, even if they move to a different neighborhood/school district within the same state. Because K12 online public schools are part of each state s public school system, eligibility requirements vary. Relocation to another state will require transfer to a K12 online public school in that state. How does K12 address the needs of struggling students? What about gifted children? The K12 curriculum has been highly praised by educators and parents alike for its ability to support individually paced learning and to help get students on track or move ahead. The curriculum can accommodate kids with learning challenges, and makes it easy and convenient for students to repeat a course. A robust Advanced Learner Program (ALP) for grades 3 8 gives gifted kids the chance to further explore subjects of particular interest, and high school students can take Honors and AP courses. As always, teachers are readily available via or phone, and suggestions from other parents are a click away through the Parent2Parent Hotline. *Interactive Education Systems Design (IESD), Inc., in collaboration with The Center for Research in Education Policy (CREP), August 2008.

10 REAL FAMILIES. REAL STUDENTS. REAL LIFE. When we moved to Washington D.C., my older daughter was about to start eighth grade. The base offered bus service to an area school, but it could mean up to a 2-hour commute each way. She struggled in math and writing and was too shy to ask for help. That was when we were introduced to K 12. My daughter was able to work at a pace that allowed her to catch up on subjects she was not as sure about, which helped give her the confidence to enter high school and college with her head held high. Five years later, after settling into our new home in Florida, our youngest was ready for kindergarten, but was told that she had to wait another year because of her September birthday. K 12 came to our rescue again. She accepted the challenge a year before Florida said she could, and kept on trucking through first grade as well. Now we have moved to Washington State, and my youngest does not have any worries about entering second grade because she brought her school with her. The K 12 teachers have gone out of their way to make a connection to her, and she feels very close to them, even though she has actually met them only a few times for field trips. The K 12 program allowed us to become closer as a family. HOLLY, WA

11 My husband is an Apache pilot for the U.S. Army, and with his crazy schedule and deployments K 12 makes transitions easier on both of our girls. It also makes vacations or going home to see family easier because we can bring school with us. K 12 is also easier on me, as I have Lupus and Crohn s disease and sometimes just getting out of bed can be a chore. On those days, my daughter gets in my bed with the laptop and school happens anyway. This is especially amazing when my husband is deployed I m not sure how I would get her to school on bad days. My husband came home from a year-long deployment in February. Since they re enrolled in Colorado Virtual Academy [a K 12 online public school], my girls had the chance to spend time with their dad. He jumped in and did school with them on his leave. These are special moments and great bonding after all that lost time. We have met some amazing people while at COVA, and the understanding and flexibility for our life fits our family so well. K 12 helps us adjust to our crazy lifestyle. BEVERLY, CO
