cyber schools?

Anyone use them? I know of Calvert, what else is there?
This would be for a 4th grader.

Re: online schools?

I'm looking into doing time4learning for my kids next year, online but not free though it's not super pricey

Re: online schools?

Hello there!

Are you referring to on-line cyber schools? I believe it varies by area what cyber schools are offered. Here in Philadelphia we have a few to chose from Agora, PA Virtual Charter, and some others. They are free in this state. If you don't live in this state you can still purchase the K12 curriculum on your own.

Best wishes and feel free to ask us more questions.

Re: online schools?

Thanks, that is what I meant as i don't want all learning to be online like time4learning. We do not have any free options in my county,they charge for K12. These past couple years I have pieced together my own curriculum, but with a new lo coming and another ds turning school age thought it would be easier to try one that is all planned out for us. I have only heard of Calvert so wondering what else is out there

Little Lincoln, Lincoln interactive, global student network, elearning k12 (not public charter), progress academy.(Do not recommend progress academy) To name a few.


All vary in price. We use elearning k12 for $95 a month (2 high school students). We really like it. It's $50 a month for first student and $5 off for each additional. This is without teacher support. They have add ons for extra as well.

Re: cyber schools?

We're still a long time off from this but it K12 a program that offers a diploma? I met a lady in our community that was doing online HS for high school and she said it was diploma, not GED.

K12 and Connections offer public school diplomas. There may be others in your county as well run by your district.

We have district run cyber schools, and national ones like k12 and connections in our state.

Re: cyber schools?

we do k12 through ohva & we like it. Although not cyber but have hear great things about heart of dakota--I've been told it has everything laid out for you. I would also advise you that k12 is can demanding on your time at least in Ohio you need to submit attendence and be current in your progess on a daily basis. It does give you all of your materials but we are thinking of actually going more traditional in our homeschooling within the next several years because of the increased flexiablity (which is what would be important to me if I were expecting).
