A variety of courses are available in Math; Science and Engineering; Arts and Humanities; Computing; Economics and Finance; College and Careers; and Test Prep. Learning levels range from Preschool to College level understanding. This educational program is partnered with NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT.

A free SAT course is available. These tests have been created in partnership with the College Board to ensure that individuals are getting quality practice exams. The course is interactive including practice exercises, instructional videos, and personalized learning.

Khan Academy is awesome! It's my go to to whenever I have a question about school. I've used it mainly to answer my math and science questions but I know it has a lot of more applications. It has been so helpful and several times has saved me hours by simplifying the process for me.

This helped me greatly while in high school and even during college. The instructors are very well educated and explain topics very well. They made extremely hard topics easy to understand. I sometimes learned more from them than I did from some of my instructors.

KHAN ACADEMY IS INCREDIBLE. It helped me so much to understand biology, and so many other classes that I took in college. Mainly Chemistry and Biology. Better than my professor taught it and I understood it better. Would highly recommend.

Khan Academy helped me learn algebra in middle school my school payed for it and I liked it a lot if you have a question that they don't answer post it to the live board and they will answer in about 2-3 hours, only thing is some lessons they don't have all the instructors but they have instructors that go with your pace. Great thing trust me.

I used Khan academy throughout high school to prepare for my SAT. A lot of the practices utilized both videos and sample problems to help me practice for the upcoming tests. I liked that the practice problems were interactive and that if i needed help, there was a video to aid me. Khan Academy also gave me feedback on my responses and why an answer was better than another. I enjoyed the website to help me prepare for my SAT test but i did feel as if some articles were uninteresting.
