May 15, 2008

HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2008--K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) announced that its private school - K12 International Academy - has been granted accreditation by the Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation (CITA). CITA accreditation indicates that the K12 International Academy meets or exceeds essential standards of education quality.

CITA accreditation is granted to an educational institution upon successful completion of a lengthy evaluation process, which includes a self-study and an on-site evaluation. Following the self-study, a team of experienced educators evaluates the school to verify that it meets the quality standards.

CITA is an accrediting authority both in the United States and throughout the world. It is responsible for evaluating and accrediting more than 32,000 schools in 100 countries covering over 17 million students.

The CITA accreditation also fulfills the requirements of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI). Accordingly, the K12 International Academy was also granted accreditation by SACS CASI.

Accreditation provides reciprocity of credits, courses, and grade-level placements between schools and universities around the world, and validation of the equivalency of diplomas and certificates to other accredited schools and universities.

The K12 International Academy is a private, diploma-granting online school serving students in the U.S. and around the world in grades K-12. The school's mission is to create a global community of students, teachers, parents, and mentors that is connected by technology and dedicated to developing the unique character and intellect of each student, thereby laying the foundation for his or her success in life.
