"The graduates of K12's class of 2014 are true pioneers," said K12 Chairman and CEO, Nate Davis. "K12's online and blended schools are innovative educational models that require a high level of individual effort, hard work and self-discipline. We congratulate these students on their achievements, commend the parents for their support and guidance, and thank our teachers and school leaders for their service."
K12 schools around the country held graduation ceremonies that brought students, parents, teachers, and school administrators together from all across the state.

Last year, more than 4,000 students graduated from online and blended schools supported by K12.
Each student has a unique story, and their reasons for choosing K12 online and blended schools are as diverse as the student population itself. Some choose these schools because it allows them to learn at an advanced pace and take college-level courses, while others come to online and blended schools to find refuge from unsafe schools, bullying, or negative peer pressures. K12 also helps students with special needs overcome learning challenges, and provides new opportunities to students in need of credit recovery or who had dropped out of school.
