How It Works (TK–8)

Friendship Public Charter School Online is a tuition-free public school that uses the K12 curriculum. Lessons are delivered through a platform called the Online School, as well as through more traditional methods. Materials like books, CDs, and even science lab supplies are delivered right to your doorstep.

We also partner you and your child with a certified teacher to help guide and track progress through the curriculum. There will be frequent in-person events as well.

Student-to-student interaction is emphasized too, so your child will always be well educated and well socialized.
