The Colorado Virtual Academy, a tuition-free public charter school open to all K-12 grade level residents of the state of Colorado, is one of the most interesting and technologically advanced public education programs in the country. In this day and age where traditional schools are getting to the point where nearly all the educating is done via computer, it was only a matter of time before a complete online K-12 school system was available online as well.
If you’re a resident of Colorado, the Colorado Virtual Academy is completely free for your children to attend. This includes the cost of books and materials as well; they will literally ship the books to your doorstep free of charge. The only requirements for you are that you must own a functioning computer that meets certain minimum requirements and you must have a stable internet connection capable of loading the coursework.
