At present, the majority of all high school work is done on a computer. This is particularly true when a student is attending an online high school. Assignments are often emailed, and learners are at a disadvantage without access to online resources. It can be difficult for students to find information, use search engines, and type out assignments without the use of a personal computer.
Insight Schools’ Free Laptop Program
One program that offers an excellent value to online students is the Insight Schools network. Insight provides its students with laptop computers for the duration of their studies, as well as printers/scanners, headsets and microphones. Learners are also given a stipend to offset the cost of Internet access.

Other Schools that Offer Free Technology
Many online schools offer their students some measure of technology assistance. Like Insight, some schools reimburse the cost of Internet access, while others offer loaner computers or printers to students with financial limitations. Even if a school does not advertise free computers, it is worth the time to ask the admissions department if any technology assistance is available.
