K12 offers outstanding, highly effective curriculum that enables mastery of core concepts and skills for all kinds of minds. The minds that are superbly gifted--or that are gifted in some areas and struggling in others. The minds that need to use hands to learn on some days, and eyes or ears on others. The minds that move faster or slower than average. The minds that are connected to bodies that need to run off steam periodically, or that are medically unable to attend a physical school. All kinds of minds, not just the best and brightest - not just the ones that are easy to teach in a classroom.
We enable a diverse group of children to achieve mastery through a combination of individualized learning approaches, passionate teacher engagement, adherence to the best educational research that has been conducted over the past several decades about how young minds really work, and rich, engaging content.
It?s all about removing the barriers that keep children from reaching their true, individual potential?it's what gets us jumping out of bed in the morning to come to work. Each year, we help tens of thousands of students reach out toward their true personal possibility. We reach these students through a number of channels including:
individual course and product sales directly to families.
We are focused on being available to any child, anywhere, who can benefit from an individualized approach, whether it?s full-time schooling outside of the traditional brick-and-mortar school, or through part-time or supplemental options available both inside and outside of the traditional classroom.

At Sonlight, we believe that homeschooling is a way of life and an overarching attitude toward the world. The world is out there to be marveled at, enjoyed, explored, and learned from. Once you catch on to this idea, you will find it easy to see educational value in almost everything you do.
Sonlight's "Secret": No More Boring Textbooks!
Use quality books that present content in a highly engaging fashion.
Sonlight's "secret" really comes down to this: we believe that most children respond more positively to great literature than they do to textbooks. Books ? quality books ? can distill the wisdom of an entire life into the span of a few pages. They can feed us with spiritual insight beyond imagination. Whether written by Christians or non- Christians, great books help us to develop critical thinking skills. They cause us to question the validity of our own values and beliefs in light of the author's perspective.
These benefits of great literature have inspired us to build our curriculum on quality books that present content in a highly engaging fashion. Once a good book grabs your child's attention, you'll find that the educational process becomes relatively painless ? because your child will actually want to read!
Moreover, you'll find we've made your life even easier with our Instructor's Guides. They include reading schedules that coordinate and integrate study across subjects, instructor's notes, study guides, student activity sheets and much more.
