    An alternative to homeschooling and traditional schools are hybrid institutions, such as Odyssey Charter Schools in Las Vegas, that bring the best of both in-class and virtual instruction.

    Odyssey Charter Schools offers an alternative learning experience for students that want to do the majority of their learning at home but also be involved in a classroom setting once a week. Odyssey combines in-person instruction with a highly interactive internet-based curriculum.

    The student body largely comprises of students who travel often, have interests or needs that demand a more open schedule, and students with special learning requirements.

    Actually, families have several options when it comes to K12.

    First, homeschool families can purchase individual courses or a complete curriculum for their homeschool needs.

    Second, families can enroll in our accredited, worldwide, private online academy — the K12 International Academy. In doing so, they are provided with teacher and academic support along with clubs, virtual field trips and other educational offerings.

    Either way, families utilize the award-winning K12 curriculum.
