ONLINE 8th GRADE
Why Choose Online Eighth Grade
Online eighth grade students enjoy personalized learning at K12-powered schools.
Eighth grade is a pivotal year for young learners as they prepare to leave middle school and begin their high school courses. It's a time when everything in a young person's life is new and exciting—and if classes are not relevant and interactive, there are plenty of daily dramas to distract and veer your student off track.
K12-powered online eighth grade programs are designed to be engaging, covering the foundational courses that your student needs as well as introducing exciting challenges like world languages, art, music, and more.
Does your eighth grader need more support? Remedial programs* are available for students who need extra guidance. Alternatively, if your student requires more challenging coursework, you can take advantage of the K12-fueled Advanced Learner Program.*
Your online eighth grade student is in good hands with K12's quality curriculum and individually tailored education.
Online eighth grade is more than just screen time.
You want your online eighth grade student to enjoy offline learning, too. The K12-powered public school curriculum offers a nice mix of time at the computer with teachers, lessons, and assignments, along with hands-on activities that make personalized learning real.
K12-powered online eighth grade programs include independent projects away from the screen, online connections with teachers, check-ins with their Learning Coach (their parent or another responsible adult), and even activities such as field trips and class events.
Additionally, K12-powered online eighth grade programs offer your child the chance to interact with other kids their age (online or by phone)—because after all, middle school is also about learning social skills and connecting with peers.
Online Eighth Grade vs. Traditional Public School
K12-powered online eighth grade public school programs are a great option for families who want a more individualized education experience than a traditional public school setting can offer. Online public school is tuition-free,** and state-certified teachers provide instruction and support.
Your child will receive an Individualized Learning Plan and the one-to-one attention they need. They can connect to their online eighth grade classes in any setting with an internet connection—whether that's your home, a library, or any other place your busy lives take your family.
How do I enroll my child in an online eighth grade class?
You can find a K12-powered online eighth grade class near you using our School Finder. Or you can consider a private online middle school—such as K12 Private Academy or The Keystone School—but please note that these private online middle schools do charge tuition.
