K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN) is a for-profit education company that sells online schooling and curricula. K12 is an education management organization (EMO) that provides online education designed as an alternative to traditional “brick and mortar” education for public school students from kindergarten to 12th grade (hence the company’s name). Publicly traded K12 is the largest EMO in terms of enrollment.
K12 offers a personalized approach to education that removes barriers to learning and meets students where they are. We manage public and private online schools, and develop innovative curricula and technology to help students reach their full potential.
While many students thrive in traditional brick-and-mortar schools, others feel constrained by a model that simply does not fit their needs. Since our founding in 1999, we have continually improved our approach to better reflect how students learn, grow and evolve.
As pioneers in online learning, we have helped develop a new model of learning that allows kindergarten through high school students to move beyond the physical walls of the classroom. Our various education offerings include career readiness programs, support services, blended learning, dual credit courses and many others. They are designed to help every student—regardless of geographic, socioeconomic, or academic circumstance—achieve better outcomes through a personalized approach.
We recognize that teachers are at the center of every student’s experience and we are focused on recruiting and training inspired educators who have dedicated themselves to developing young and able minds. We believe that when teachers succeed, students succeed and are dedicated to expanding our national network of educator supports and professional development opportunities.
Whether it’s providing students with unique opportunities for growth or equipping talented teachers with the tools they need to succeed, we are committed to a future in which students and parents are empowered, with traditional, blended and online learning options, to design an educational path that works best for them.
