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


Support Our Stanford OHS Community

All funds are put towards enhancing student’s experience both academically and socially.

We do not use the Annual Fund to bridge tuition gaps. 

Purpose of Annual Fund Donations:

  • Support Student Life initiatives
  • Encourage curriculum innovation
  • Promote professional development

This Year's Campaign Goal: 100% Participation

The global pandemic has impacted the Stanford OHS community in many different ways. We encourage every family and employee to contribute and make a donation to the Annual Fund at any level. Every single donation – whether $10 or $10,000 – will demonstrate support towards Stanford OHS, and an appreciation for the unique education that our students are fortunate to be able to maintain in this unprecedented time.

Your Annual Fund Gift Matters

Robotics 2021

Enhance Student Life

The Annual Fund sponsored the Stanford OHS Robotics Club, the Knights of Ni, in attending robotics tournaments such as FTC San Mateo Qualifying Tournament where they earned the Control Award 1st Place, and ranked 4th in robot performance. The Control Award is given to a team that uses sensors and software to enhance the robot's functionality on the field, and that demonstrates innovative thinking in the control system to solve game strategies.

"We were extremely happy that we received the Control Award since that is the main focus of our team this year," said Stanford OHS senior Andrew C. "We really strove to implement systems to make our robot more reliable and easier to drive and control. I am so happy and proud of what our team has achieved this year through collaboration, especially during the pandemic."

Curriculum Innovation


This year, the Annual Fund supported the development of new curricula including Pixelia Publishing, a collaboration between Stanford OHS instructors, alumni, and students to edit and publish books. "Bath: An Adumbration in Rhyme. A Critical Edition for Readers of Jane Austen," is the work of English teacher Ben Wiebracht, and seven Stanford OHS students and recent alumni. Taking the late-eighteenth-century poem by the minor poet John Matthews, they created a new edition which includes a richly annotated text of the poem, as well as an introduction that situates the book in relation to Austen’s life and career. The Annual Fund helped cover the cost to publish hard-copies of the book and allow our students, alumni, and instructors to be published authors and editors!
