Who is this intended for?

Students in grades 9–12 who reside within the state of California are eligible to attend one of the 10 independent California Virtual Academies for high school.

What are the tuition costs?

Because we are part of the public school system, families do not pay tuition for a student to attend one of the 10 independent California Virtual Academies. California Virtual Academies will loan a computer to an enrolling family, upon request. However, common household items and office supplies like printer ink and paper are not provided.
