K12 Private Academy


My review for K-12 and VA Virtual Academy? Epic FAIL.

Sarah was supposed to attend all online education this year. I didn't want to take any chances that she might have to go back into a classroom and I didn't trust the school board not to force the issue so I began enrolling her July 11.

I submitted as much information as I could at the time given that the schools were closed for the Summer. I received an email in August that they were missing information. I logged into the Parent Portal... And they were not. They had yet to process one document that would then allow them to proceed with gathering the missing information. Information their system would not allow me to submit.

She was supposed to start September 1 but by the end of August, they still hadn't requested the information they insisted they had to get directly from the school. So let's push her start date to September 8. Okay.

September 7, we still have no information so I log in to the Parent Portal and discover that she is "not eligible". So I call and find out that her GPA from the prior year is not high enough. Ummm... She was in the hospital for the first month. On homebound for the rest of the semester and actually in class for 2 months. The good news is that she ONLY failed two classes. Surely there is an appeals process? Why yes. There is. Please submit her 8th grade transcript and a letter from the doctor explaining that she isn't developmentally delayed, she was too busy struggling to breathe to go to school. Okay. It took some time to get the Doctor's letter to them but we did.

Enrollment was closed September 10. At no time did we receive an email telling us that, since she'd been approved. We found out today. 12/1. We found out when we Googled the school because the only contact information we had was for K-12, not the school. We received no communication whatsoever about the appeal "because enrollment was already closed."

There aren't enough curse words in my vocabulary to express how angry I am. Now we go back to the regular public school for online education because NO she is NOT going back into the classroom until her doctor is satisfied that it is safe for her to do so.

I was told I could homeschool her. I'm a lot of things. I have many letters after my name. You know what I'm not? I'm not a TEACHER. My daughter needs to be prepared for what comes next and I know, with absolutely certainty, that I lack the skills to teach her what she needs for college. I can teach her to be a good person, to stand up for herself and others, to bathe regularly, to always vote, etc. I cannot teach her high school math, science, history, etc. I cannot teach her art or encourage her to sing or act.

Thanks K-12.com for NOTHING.

So proud of our 13 year old for being invited to the Junior Honor Society. Today he prepared his “About Me” slide. The dogs totally took over the picture but so much of what he loves is included in it. We are so happy about choosing K12!
Is there a group for LCs of 9th Graders? Thanks!
We are ready for school at our house
Curious to know if there is a side by side comparison of private verses public??? We just enrolled out 11th grader in public and considering switching to private but what are the differences?
Hello all we are joining this year are there any pages that we can also join?
What do I give my daughter's school as a mailing address for K12 International?
Hello, we are interested in your program for the summer term but haven't received answers to any of the emails we have sent over the last two weeks. We live internationally and email is the best method of correspondence for us. Can someone please respond to our messages?
