Welcome to this special series on the thinktanK12 blog, where you can meet students, parents, and educators who are discovering the power of learning with K12.
Gigi LeMaire is a very talented—and very busy—teenager. For over two years, she’s been one of the stars of the hit TV show “The Wannabes.” And since she was seven years old, she’s been a member of teen pop group Savvy. Starting last February, Gigi has also been enrolled in online private schooling via K12 International Academy. This month, she graduated to ninth grade.
Prior to K12, Gigi’s family tried other approaches to balancing her education and budding career, including traditional public school as well as homeschooling through a regional university program. We recently spoke with Gigi and her mother Christine—who founded and manages Savvy—about why they changed to K12, and how their first year has been going.
