K12 Online Schools in Arkansas Vs. Traditional Public Schools

Like a brick-and-mortar public school, the K12-powered Arkansas public school is tuition-free,* adheres to a traditional academic calendar, uses state-licensed teachers, and has counselors and school staff who offer help. Unlike a traditional public school, your student’s classroom is wherever there’s an internet connection.

A Personalized Public School Experience

Knowing that your student’s unique learning style will be recognized is just one of the many advantages that come with attending a K12-powered online school in Arkansas. Arkansas-licensed teachers conduct live online classes and work with families to develop personalized learning plans. And the engaging, interactive K12 curriculum offers core courses in addition to art, music, world languages, a variety of high school electives, and honors and AP® level courses. Plus, there are career-focused options to help students explore possible careers. 

How does online school in Arkansas work?

In addition to live online teacher-led classes with classmates, students enrolled in Arkansas’s K12-powered online public school receive support from their Learning Coach. The Learning Coach, usually a parent or other responsible adult, plays an active role (especially in the early grades) and ensures the student is on track with assignments and coursework, and records daily attendance.

In grades K–5, the curriculum is mastery-based, allowing students to learn at their own pace with a mix of online and hands-on lessons. Learning Coach involvement at these grade levels is the most intensive and is crucial to student success.

Students in grades 6–8 become more independent and start to track their own learning schedule, requiring less support from the Learning Coach as they develop more personal responsibility.

Students in grades 9–12 mostly work independently and, in addition to core courses, can take electives that will help them achieve their post-graduation goals. At this level, usually only minimal assistance is needed from the Learning Coach.
