Free Virtual Public Schools


Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, many states offered free virtual (online) public schools. Since we couldn’t find a comprehensive listing, we compiled our own list for you in the table below. Click on the green button next to the state to see information that may not be visible in the rightmost columns; some states have 3-4 schools and/or statewide general information listed. Note also that there is a drop-down menu to the upper left of the chart allowing you to see all 50 states on one page.

In addition to these options, there are a variety of low-cost virtual private schools available for K-12 students, in some cases through nonprofit organizations. Contact us for more resource suggestions.
