Headquartered in Herndon, VA, this company develops the curriculum for free online public education for states and school districts and then in many cases implements it by instituting kindergarten through grade 12 online academies in those states. Also, it has its own tuition-based online K-12 school programs, which individual students in any state can enroll in. It develops its own curriculum for each of its many schools, and so it hires both teachers who may either teach or create the curricula and assessments.
