How It Works

Tuition & Costs

How much does online public school cost?

No tuition is required for students to attend Hoosier College and Career Academy (HCCA). As an online public school, HCCA is a tuition-free alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar public schools. Since students can enroll from anywhere in the state where internet is available, we’re able to provide a powerful school choice, making quality education more accessible for all Indiana students in grades 7–12.

Just as with onsite public schools, there are some online school fees for supplies and materials that will help your child be successful with online learning. Read below for more information about how online public schools are funded and what costs families can expect to incur.
