Long-term patients at three major children's hospitals will have free access to online courses this year through the Virtual High School (VHS), a national nonprofit provider of virtual instruction.

VHS is giving as many as 50 course seats, as well as training, to each of the three hospitals as part of a pilot project worth an estimated $30,000. The organization's goal is to expand the project to other hospitals nationwide beginning next year, so students who are injured or sick don't fall behind in their education.

Receiving these first donations will be Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, St. Mary's Hospital
