An award-winning online homeschool curriculum for kids
Thousands of students have had success with K5 and its 3,000 tutorials and activities. Our award-winning lessons are research-based and aligned with national education standards.
Secular but respectful
K5 Learning is a secular program, but is respecful of traditional values. Our animated characters are 'role models' and you will not find inappropriate behaviour or clothing. The program is used by many Christian homeschooling families.
Free assessments for homeschoolers
We recommend that students complete our free online reading and math assessments. After completing the assessments, each child is placed in the lessons according to their skills, not their grade levels. A child may be placed at an early grade 3 level in phonics and a mid-grade 1 level in geometry, or vice versa.

Geometry – characteristics and properties of geometric shapes.
Algebra - patterns, relations, functions, use of models and algebraic symbols.

Students work independently
K5 minimizes the burden on parents. Point and click interfaces and repeated spoken instructions allow kids as young as 4 to use K5 Learning independently.
The lessons are highly interactive, continually prompting the student to respond. This is critical in maintaining children’s focus and generating positive learning outcomes.
Homeschoolers can create custom lesson assignments (if they want to)
Normally, lessons on K5 are automatically chosen by the system based on your child’s needs. K5 students cannot choose lessons at an inappropriate level or continue to repeat ‘fun’ lessons that they have already mastered.
Homeschoolers often make extensive use of our assignments feature to assign specific lessons to their children at any time.
Full instruction, not just quizzes
All of our lessons start with a full interactive tutorial so kids can learn new materials, not just practice what they have learned elsewhere. Tutorials are followed by practice sessions and finally a quiz.
Feedback is immediate
K5 Learning lets your child know right away when they get something right or wrong. Kids remember better and are more motivated when they receive immediate feedback.
Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility in your homeschooling
Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Kids learn better with short but frequent study sessions.
Parents get reports
Parents can access comprehensive reports on their child’s progress at any time.
