Can I use Khan Academy for homeschooling?
I'm 15 and going into my Sophmore year, and K-12 is giving me problems. Can I use this site for homeschooling or do I have to go through another program and use this too?

If this post covers a topic that you’re interested in discussing with the community or requests a feature you’d like to see on Khan Academy, you can try to find an active post about it and add your thoughts (or feel free or create a new post if it doesn’t yet exist in the forum).
Khan Academy's lessons can be used by anyone, just search for the skills you're having trouble with and practice them.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
I would echo what Shadow has said. Khan is a wonderful resource. I would be sure to double check your program's requirements to see that it meets on necessary standards. Best of luck!!
Khan Academy is not an accredited school and work done on the site does not count towards a diploma or degree program. Please be sure to be in contact with your state homeschooling organizations to be sure that you are meeting all requirements.
That said, Khan Academy is a great supplement to your normal schooling and a valuable resource for homeschooling families! Check out this page about using Khan Academy as a homeschooler. Our math content is aligned with the Common Core Standards, with exercises stretching from basic arithmetic through advanced calculus. We also have a variety of AP-aligned courses, and official SAT practice. At this time, we don't have content for elementary and middle school science or English classes, so you may need to find other resources for those subjects.
If you have specific requests for new homeschooling content, please use the Content request and Feedback forum where others can add their own thoughts to yours and can vote on your idea.
If you’re a parent who’d like to use Khan Academy in homeschool, this article will guide you through the process of creating accounts for you and your children, in addition to giving you detailed information on the full features of your Khan Academy accounts.
