EQUIPMENT AND CONNECTION

Hardware Requirements

California Connections Academy encourages families to use their own computer. Please be sure your system meets our minimum system requirements.

If you choose, your family may request one laptop per household. Any computer equipment supplied by the school is on loan during enrollment and must be returned upon withdrawal, graduation, or at the request of the school.

Internet Service

California Connections Academy households may request a subsidy towards the cost of your household Internet service. Please refer to the school handbook for the payment schedule details. The handbook is available to families after the initial enrollment registration.

Households are responsible for obtaining an Internet service provider.

Printer

California Connections Academy families are responsible for providing their own printer. Printers are not required as printing is not typically needed to complete coursework.

Support

We offer comprehensive technical support and usage information for the systems we provide.
