No-Cost Summer School Options

K12, Inc. announced that it is providing more than 150 summer courses to students across the country. The company’s summer programs will give new and returning students the opportunity to experience a ready-built online learning platform as they look forward to the school year ahead.

“This summer in particular, parents are eager to find exciting, meaningful ways to keep their students engaged and keep them excited about learning,” said Kevin P. Chavous, K12’s President of Academics, Policy, and Schools. “Our personalized approach to summer programming helps ensure that students invest in their own academic growth and reach their full potential along the way.”

K12’s summer offerings feature a variety of programs and enrichment activities for returning and newly-enrolled students in online public schools supported by K12. One program, Brain Boost, offers an interactive learning experience designed to help students hone their creative skills and master core subject matter. As part of Brain Boost, new and returning students will have access to thousands of eBooks in both English and Spanish through Big Universe, and to Stride, an online, adaptive game-based learning platform for math, reading, and English language arts.

Through content provided by Roadtrip Nation, high school students can explore different career paths in growing and in-demand fields. Additionally, through The Keystone School, high schoolers can get a jumpstart on graduation requirements by enrolling in tuition-free summer elective courses covering topics such as health, personal finance, and art appreciation.

In addition to the Brain Boost and Keystone opportunities, K12 offers a summer school catalogue designed to help keep students’ minds engaged during the summer. Courses allow eligible students to earn supplementary credit through core, credit recovery, and elective courses.​

Enrollment in summer school has already started in some states. For more information and to review a list of schools by state, please visit
