A Family of Independent Schools
Stanford OHS, the standard-bearer in seminar-style online learning, plays a lead role in the Malone Schools Online Network. A consortium of independent schools supported by the Malone Family Foundation, MSON provides a variety of courses to expand each member school’s existing curriculum.
How MSON Blends With Stanford OHS
- Like Stanford OHS classes, MSON classes meet as interactive, real-time seminars for two hours each week and require students to demonstrate independence and high-level motivation.
- MSON courses count toward Stanford OHS residency and academic requirements.
- MSON courses appear on all Stanford OHS transcripts.
- Stanford OHS students can access MSON classes through the normal course enrollment process.
Among the MSON offerings in academic year 2015–2016 are Ancient Greek; Arabic; The American Food System; Contemporary Topics in Music History; Medical Bioethics; Advanced Topics in Chemistry; CSI: MSON; Fundamentals of Nuclear Science and Engineering, and Introduction to Organic Chemistry.
