A la carte. Not merely a clever French
phrase but the perfect way to customize your education.
At its core it means the freedom to learn where you want,
when you want and at the pace you want. But it's also all
about piecing together the perfect learning experience,
whether through our complete curricula or through the
selection of just the courses you need through our
exclusive, a la carte
Learning for the way you live
means so much at
A lesson in a la carte.
Suppose you are a home school family and you use one of
the many excellent curricula now available, even ones other
than eLearningk12.com. Your child's educational journey is
going well until one night, your fourth grader announces at
dinner how interesting he thought the day's geography lesson
was because it focused on the relics of the Ming dynasty of
China, and now someday he wants to be an explorer and
walk the entire distance of the Great Wall! Being the
engaged and nurturing parent that you are, of course you
want to build upon his natural curiosity by providing
opportunities for him to immerse himself in the culture of
China through first learning the language. But to your
dismay, your curriculum course options are limited to only
French, Spanish and German without a Chinese syllable to be
found. What is an engaged parent like you to do?
First, have no fear. The answer is but a few mouse clicks
where you will find hundreds of courses that can be
selected at will, or as we say it, "a la carte"

Grade levels, 3rd, 4th and 5th. Pumping your fist in the
air, you shout out
Or how about this? Suppose your education choice follows the
traditional classroom model. Midway through the semester
your adventurous middle child miscalculates a step while
scaling the old oak tree in the backyard, falls and breaks a
bone, resulting in bed rest for four solid weeks. Upon full
recovery you discover that she has missed too many hours of
her traditional classroom studies to complete the course
with her classmates. What is a parent to do? It's
a la carte courses to the rescue. Knowing that
courses are approved by the State of
Louisiana as a Single Course provider and accepted by most
public and private schools, you select the courses needed to
earn credits, work with the classroom teachers to have her
take the chapter tests with the class, on schedule, and
slide your climbing offspring right back into class with her
