About K12 Inc.

K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), a technology-based education company, is the largest provider of online education programs for students in kindergarten through high school in the U.S. These programs deliver individualized education to students through public and private online schools, traditional classrooms, blended school programs, and directly to families through direct purchase. Founded in 2000, K12 has provided over 2 million courses - core subjects, AP(R), world languages, credit recovery, and electives - to more than 200,000 students worldwide. Over 90 percent of parents surveyed are satisfied with the K12 program and agree that their children have benefited academically with K12. Students graduating from virtual schools supported by K12 have been accepted to hundreds of higher education institutions including many of the nation's top-ranked colleges and universities.

K12 also distributes its extensive course catalog directly to school districts, as well as the course catalogs of Aventa LearningTM, acquired in July 2010, and American Education Corporation, a leading provider of instructional and assessment software for kindergarten through adult learners, which was acquired in December 2010.

K12 also owns, operates or provides services to several private schools: the K12 International AcademyTM, is an accredited, diploma-granting online private school; the KeystoneTM School, an accredited school with more than 35 years of distance and online learning success; and the George Washington University Online High School, an online school recently formed with the George Washington University.

K12's language initiatives are executed through strategic alliances. K12 has partnered with Middlebury College in a new venture called Middlebury Interactive Languages to create and distribute innovative online language courses for pre-college students. K12 has a strategic investment in Web International English, a leader in English language training for students in China.

K12's educational products are built on a strong research foundation by teams of highly credentialed and experienced academic and functional experts. Together, these teams have created over 60,000 hours of content across 480 course titles, and their specialized expertise is calibrated closely to the wide range of learning needs and environments where K12's products are used. By leveraging technology appropriately, and using all available instructional modalities (from online courseware to offline print, including manipulatives and interactive media), K12 provides engaging instructional experiences where students can learn at their own pace whether in institutionally structured or individually prompted learning environments.

K12 also owns and distributes curriculum and services to post-secondary institutions through Capital Education and through a joint venture with Blackboard.

K12 is accredited through AdvancED, the world's largest education community. More information on K12 can be found at: www.K12.com
