21K School is an online school experience that offers personalised learning – anytime, anywhere. The aim is to support home-schooling and give a structure to learning at home. It is not a traditional school with brick and mortar. Primary Students who require a formal certificate or marks sheet can register with NIOS (The National Institute of Open Schooling, an autonomous institution under the Ministry of Education, Government of India) and appear for examinations at the end of the year at a centre near their place of residence. 21K will facilitate this process for all such students. 21K is an EdTech start-up and is not recognised as a School in a traditional sense or affiliated to any Government Body in India. Our American and IGCSE/A-Level programs are accredited and recognized around the globe. In future, we may affiliate with a recognised board in India, subject to the laws of the land. Please read our blog on homeschooling and child’s rights.

The Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools accredit early-childhood through post-secondary, non-degree granting public, private, faith-based educational institutions including special purpose schools, supplementary education centers, learning services providers, and distance education institutions. The Commissions also award accreditation to member institutions in more than 85 countries around the world.
