K12 International Academy has a singular focus: to help your child reach his or her true, personal potential. Combining K12’s award-winning curriculum and methodology with passionate educators, a socially active learning community, and an Individualized Learning Plan for every student, we put into motion a 360-degree solution tailored to your child’s specific needs. Our emphasis on the individual is so robust, we’ve even earned the nickname “iCademy.”
K12 International Academy can be uniquely tailored for academically gifted students. By encouraging parent involvement and offering an array of enriching options, you can ensure that your talented child is given every opportunity to grow, excel, and reach his or her highest potential.
The Individualized Learning Plan can help a gifted child make the most of the flexible K12 Program. Our Upper School students can take AP, World Language and STEM courses, and even earn high school and college credits at the same time with our dual credit courses.
Advanced Placement (AP), Honors, and Dual-Credit courses
The K12 Upper School curriculum includes 19 college-level AP options. These courses prepare students to take Advanced Placement exams and earn college credit. Choices range from core subjects like AP English Literature, Biology, U.S. History, and Spanish Language to more specialized subjects such as AP Art History and AP Computer Science. There is also a full complement of 15 Honors-level core courses, which are often at just the right level for the gifted high school student who seeks a satisfying challenge.
And through our dual-enrollment program with University of Maryland University College (UMUC), eligible seniors can take college-level courses at no additional charge for UMUC tuition. This leads to dual credit toward graduation from K12 International Academy and for college at UMUC and possibly other universities.
Six world language options, developed with world-famous language experts from Middlebury College, help iCademy students become global citizens. Our courses are also aligned with standards set by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). Options include Spanish, French, German, Latin, Chinese, and Japanese, with up to five levels available, depending on the language.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and beyond
The rigorous K12 curriculum offers students ready for a challenge an exciting range of opportunities. In Upper School, the curriculum includes Honors levels of most math and science courses, and, as noted, multiple AP courses specific to STEM areas of study.
Plus, there are dozens of career-building electives in the humanities, the social sciences, business, and especially STEM fields. 17 STEM electives are currently available, such as C++ Programming, Forensic Science, Green Design and Technology, and Engineering Design. Few schools of any kind offer such an array of advanced, specialized courses and expert teachers who lead the way.
