What is Khan Academy? We offer exercises, quizzes, and tests so students can practice and master skills, as well as instructional videos to help students learn or review material.

Khan Academy has a library of standards-aligned lessons covering kindergarten through early college math, grammar, science, history, AP® courses, SAT® preparation, and more.

Students without laptops can access the Khan Academy website or use the Khan Academy app on smart phones.

Teachers get tools and reports designed specifically for them.

Teachers can easily assign students an entire course—Algebra 1 or AP Biology, for example—a specific unit, or a specific skill.

Teachers can easily track student progress with our reports.

Khan Academy Kids for early learners

If you have a child ages two to seven, we recommend our free app, Khan Academy Kids. In addition to building early literacy, reading, writing, language, and math skills, the app encourages creativity and builds social-emotional skills. It is 100% free, with no ads and no in-app purchases. Khan Academy Kids is available on iTunes, Google Play, and the Amazon App store.

Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization.

Our mission is to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. With more than one billion children world-wide being impacted by school closures, we are experiencing soaring demand for our free resources. Our ability to quickly increase our services is made possible by Bank of America, AT&T, and Novartis. If you are able, please consider making a donation. Together, we can keep everyone learning.
