Stanford Online High School

Want to get an early start at Stanford? Stanford Online High School for grades 7 to 12 may be the place to start.

Stanford University is not just for University education, it also has a program for middle and high school education.

Compared to the simple, direct names of other Stanford Online Classes, such as AI-Class, the online school has a complicated name - EPGY OHS, Education Program for Gifted Youth Online High School.

Per the school 
The Online High School is a fully accredited, diploma granting, online independent school situated at Stanford University. Serving grades 7-12, the OHS prepares students from around the world for success both in life and in their future intellectual pursuits.
With school fees of about $15,000 per year, the school’s tuition is at the lower end of private school tuition.

Admissions require standarized test scores – One of ACT, PSAT, SAT for high school students and one of ISEE, SCAT, SSAT for middle school students.

While attending OHS does not guarantee acceptance into Stanford University, 8 out of 75 OHS students were accepted at Stanford University last year an impressive number.
