Support Us

Stanford Online High School's unique education model creates more robust opportunities for students, instructors, and staff through the Annual Fund.

Thank You, Annual Fund!

Mount Wilson Observatory Research Trip

The Stanford OHS Annual fund sponsored Kalée Tock to attend several conferences, making it possible for her to incorporate current research into her astrophysics course. Conference attendance also facilitates the formation of connections with astronomers and researchers who are now supporting Stanford OHS students in their spring seminar astrophysics research projects. Kalée attended the Mt. Wilson Observatory in Pasadena, the Society for Astronomical Sciences in Ontario, California, and the NASA Citizen Science conference in Tucson, Arizona.

Giving to Stanford OHS

Summer at Stanford 2019

As we travel along our educational path, we are grateful for our unique and amazing school that brings out the best in our students. All of our paths are remarkable and inspiring, and allow our students to make a difference in our community. Our students experience a rich intellectual education that enables students to be great citizens of the world.


Route OHS: Margin of Excellence

All funds are put towards enhancing student’s experience both academically and socially. We do not use the annual fund to bridge tuition gaps. 

Funding Priorities

To improve the Stanford OHS experience for our students, instructors, and staff by providing supplemental funding for three key areas:

Expand Professional Development
Supporting instructors in their ongoing pursuit of academic expertise and pedagogy, through increased funding for research, and participation in conferences and workshops.

Promote Curriculum Innovation
Providing time and resources for instructors to create new courses, further develop existing courses, and collaborate across disciplines.

Enhance Student Life
Strengthening the vibrant Stanford OHS community through financial support for clubs, competitions, international trips, meetups, and other key in-person events.

Matching Fund

The Annual Fund campaign includes a matching fund from OHS families that provides a dollar-for-dollar match for new and increased donations. The match is made for each donation by a new donor this year who did not participate last year, as well as a match for every dollar given by a previous donor in excess of their total gift last year. Help us earn the matching fund!
