Idaho Online School Options


Online public school in Idaho gives families a safe, at-home learning environment with caring, certified teachers and a high-quality curriculum.

How is Idaho online school different than homeschooling?

Idaho online school students learn at home—just like other homeschooled students. But as a parent of a virtual school student, you’ll have the support of an approved and complete curriculum and caring, qualified teachers. You won’t be on your own with teaching or socializing your student.

This means that while you’ll be deeply involved in your student’s education, you won’t carry all the pressure of providing a well-balanced education on your own. So, you can rest assured that your online school student is receiving a solid Idaho education that prepares them for college, career—or wherever the future may lead.

How much does it cost to send a student to virtual school in Idaho?

As a public school option in the state, Idaho online school students receive a complete education at no cost. There are no material fees and no tuition charges.

How do I know if Idaho virtual school will give my student a good education?

By choosing an accredited, online K–12 school in Idaho, you can have more assurances that the schooling your student will receive will be high quality. Parent reviews also give you a sense of how satisfied other families are with the education that their children receive and can help you decide if Idaho virtual school is right for your family.

What grades are offered for Idaho virtual school?

Families throughout the state of Idaho can enroll students in any grade, from K to 12.

Do Idaho online high school students graduate and go on to college?

Idaho virtual school students can pick their own path after graduation. This includes college, career, military service, or meeting other individual goals.

Does online elementary school prepare my student with a good foundation?

Elementary-age online school students learn the fundamental skills they’ll need to build on in reading, writing, and math. Idaho online elementary school students also take courses in science, social studies, technology, art, and physical education, to provide a well-rounded core curriculum. Students can choose electives, activities, and clubs; take world language courses; learn basic music concepts; conduct home experiments; and more.

What will my student learn in online middle school in Idaho?

Online middle school students in Idaho work more independently, taking courses with subject-area teachers while getting support from a counselor or an advisory teacher for overall support. They actively take part in teacher-led virtual instruction and review sessions via our LiveLesson® tool, providing not only more specific instructional assistance but also the opportunity to communicate and work with their peers.
