Some companies that offer public school courses online are K12 and Connections Academy. Both schools offer a kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum and are tuition-free public school options, according to K12 and Connections Academy.
K12 partners with public schools in most U.S. states to provide a tuition-free online education, says K12. Students who are enrolled in K12 receive online instruction from certified teachers as well as an individualized education plan. In some states, students may be eligible for a loaner computer, printer and subsidized Internet access.
Connections Academy also partners with public schools and certified teachers to provide a tuition-free online education, according to Connections Academy. When students enroll in Connections Academy, they receive a personalized education program, and their parents learn to become their learning coaches. Although Connections Academy provides students with individual attention, students are part of a larger online community and have the opportunity to share their ideas with other online students.
K12 fosters a similar online community, providing class-based discussions as well as extracurricular programs, says K12. Online public schooling is a good choice for accelerated students, home bound students, students who need extended time to master concepts and students who travel frequently, according to K12.
