United K12 Academy nurtures students to become life-long independent learners. We offer accredited online courses for students in grades K-12 that will prepare students for successful futures at colleges and universities. Our program is designed to meet the needs of families seeking school options for their kids that provide individualized attention, independent mastery and a flexible schedule.

The middle school years at United K12 Academy are an exciting time as students become increasingly independent with their studies and begin to take more responsibility for their learning while parental support move more to the background. Middle school students start to work directly with highly qualified subject area teachers for their courses, but they remain under the guidance of a counselor or an advisory teacher for overall support. They actively participate in teacher-led virtual instruction and review sessions via our LiveLesson® tool, providing not only more specific instructional assistance, but also the opportunity to communicate and work with their peers across the world.

We understand that parents are busy and that teaching school curriculum to your own children can be challenging. That’s why we provide options to combine the curriculum with a learning coach and 1:1 tutoring. Choose what is best for your child.

United K12 Academy offers various levels of support to help your student achieve their goals. Students can choose from three different plans depending on their needs:

Basic Plan: Open to native English speakers and provides access to our curriculum via Connexus® and teachers versed in online instruction. Students should have their own support network to ensure their success for this plan.

Guided Plan: Open to any student who can benefit from the individualized attention by our Learning Coaches. In addition to curriculum and teacher access, our learning coaches will help keep students on track to achieve their goals.

Tutoring Plan: Our most robust plan, students will receive our top-notch curriculum, a learning coach to keep them on track, and 30 hours of 1:1 subject based tutoring.

Parent

What I like most is how everything is so focused and structured on the students. I can do schoolwork at time that works best for me, take a break when I need to do so, and move at my own pace. The teachers, courses, and real-time online lessons are so focused on my needs as a student, and I genuinely feel like the teachers care about me and greatly desire for me to succeed. This really helps to encourage me, and makes me push myself further in order to do the best I can.
