All aspects of our curriculum embody our philosophy that an education must foster critical reasoning and argumentation while at the same time engaging students in advanced academic content.
In the different academic divisions, students are trained to be discerning participants in academic and public discourse. Students have ample opportunity to deepen their knowledge in particular disciplines as they engage with advanced content through our broad offering of Advanced Placement and university-level courses.
Our instructors are chosen for their expertise in their academic disciplines and for their experience teaching highly talented students at both the high school and college levels. Most of our instructors hold Ph.D. degrees.
Our online discussion seminar is the cornerstone of the OHS academic experience, bringing together students and instructors in highly engaging, real-time discussions in the online classroom.
