i check the information on this page,
it seems to be only available for US students.
http://www.k12.com/schools-programs/online-public-schools

Are there similar programs that are open to students from other countries ?

Thanks

Yes, there are other programs, for Home Schooling or Distance Learning, available to your family and to my family (We do not live in the USA), but I am not aware of any that are free to us.

I believe that one must be a Resident of a state that offers a program like that, to apply for the free programs. In my case, I am a former resident of a state that offers those programs, but we are not eligible, because we do not live in that state now.

I have not seen totally free full programs however I do see a lot of good homeschool math videos on youtube that could provide a lot of free value. Good luck!

Wow, it seems the materials on the site is rich!
My daughter has been using the free online math on beestar (for primary kids), cute and challenging. It is definitely available for US kids. As for other countries, I'm not sure...

K12 is free if your child is enrolled in the public school's virtual school. My daughter did K12 in Georgia for half a year. We didn't like it because unlike homeschooling, you have no control of what your child learns, what your child has to do... It might feel like homeschool because you work on the computer from home, but it is NOT homeschool.

We went back to using Time4Learning, Teaching Textbooks, and Drive Thru History. We supplement with whatever she is interested in learning. It is MUCH better.

Joyfully,
Jackie

Thank you for the link to easy peasy! I don't know if we'll use it 100%, but it definitely helps with some direction.

K12 is only Free if your state/school district allows that. Here in Missouri you can access it through the MOVIP program ONLY if the local school district gives permission. We had taken advantage of it until the principal decided she wanted all our children in her school since she would get more funding.

If you use MOVIP, I'd recommend Connections Learning and Florida Virtual School before K12/Aventa. They just didn't seem as organized and Connections will actually send all materials needed for the course.

More specifically, many states now have charter schools which are Internet based, and some of those provide/required K12. So actually, K12 isn't free if your state/school district allows it; it's only free if your state has allowed Internet-based charter schools (also known as virtual academies; they might not be "charter schools" in all states, but they are still public school programs).
