Do I need to own a computer to attend?
All students require a computer system to attend. If needed, GCA will loan a computer system to a student.
What does the computer system loaned through GCA include?
GCA may loan a computer system (including computer and printer) to support the learning process. These computer systems are GCA instructional property and must be returned when the student leaves the school. GCA will arrange for technical support and troubleshooting for these computer systems.
What computer skills are required?
The Learning Coach needs to have basic computer skills. Use of the computer is an important part of the online school program, but in the early grades, it is mostly the parent (or other responsible adult) who interacts with the computer. High school students are most successful if they have basic computer skills.
What software comes installed on a K12-issued computer?
How can I install Office 365?
As part of each student's enrollment, desktop and applications of Microsoft Office Suite are included as an additional free resource. The following guide provides instructions for students to install applications of the Microsoft Suite on their PC, Mac, or mobile device: Office 365 Student Installation Guide.
Does GCA provide internet service?
Each family will need to secure their own internet service provider. In certain cases, based on financial need or other circumstances, GCA may provide a stipend to offset the cost of the internet service. This determination will take place during the enrollment process.
