Unfortunately you will find there is little to no funding for online high schools. If you dropped out and are 18, the best advice is to go to your local community college. Ask about getting an Adult High School Diploma or GED. After that you can apply to the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for college.

The General Education Development (GED) tests can allow you demonstrate that you have the skills and knowledge comparable to a high school diploma. Every year, hundreds of thousands of adults take the GED in order to get jobs, further their careers, earn promotions, or qualify for education or training, such as at a career college.

Passing this exam earns you a certificate that the vast majority of colleges, training schools, and employers in the nation recognize to be the equivalent of a high school diploma.

Over one million people take the GED every year worldwide, and of these, about 70 per cent pass.  The average age of GED test-takers is over 24 (over 30 in Canada) and almost three quarters of test-takers are over 19, proving that it is never too late to receive the recognition and the consequent benefits of the GED certification. 

The GED credential is highly regarded by both colleges and employers. In fact, the American Council on Education (ACE) reports that nearly all the employers throughout the nation are prepared to offer the same benefits, wages, and opportunities for advancement to GED graduates as they are to regular high school graduates. The GED is referred to as a ’high school equivalency’ test.

A recent study showed that the majority of GED graduates saw improvements in their employment status, financial success and even in their psychological and physical health after passing the exam.

You do not have to PAY for that. Please go to an adult school or high and they will tell you how to get it easily .
All you do is studying then take the test.  Good Luck to you.    I respect you for trying to get your diploma
