Meetups Are Events Hosted by OHS Families
OHS Families host in-person events for students to gather together and further the bonds they have made in classes online. Students at any enrollment level are invited to attend local meetups and join in on the fun. Some families even attend meetups while traveling!
What Makes a Meetup?
Past meetups have taken the form of a pool party and a game day in southern California, a weekend outdoors in Washington State’s San Juan Islands, a spring celebration in Boston, a visit to Elsinore Castle in Denmark, and a friendly gathering in Katsuura, Japan.

The Summer @ Stanford Experience
Move Beyond Online
For two weeks in August, returning and incoming Stanford OHS students gather at Stanford University for our optional residential summer program, giving students a chance to connect in person while engaging in a hands-on and enriching academic program.
Challenging and Enriching Academic Program
Summer @ Stanford offers students experiences that cannot be offered online during the school year. Hands-on, experiential learning is an important aspect of this program; we provide science laboratory courses, interdisciplinary studies, field trips, and leadership activities that foster an exemplary learning environment.
Exploring the Bay Area
As an on-campus residential program, Summer @ Stanford allows students to take advantage of the University’s rich resources. Students may visit the Cantor Arts Center, explore Stanford libraries, or hear from Stanford professors. They also get opportunities to explore the San Francisco Bay Area. Past field trips have included The Tech Museum of Innovation, the Exploratorium, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Great Way to Get Oriented
For new Stanford OHS students, Summer @ Stanford is a great way to get oriented to the community. Incoming students participate in orientation sessions that introduce them to the virtual classroom environment; to the Stanford OHS program, curriculum, and policies; to administrative and instructional staff; and to one another. With their prospective instructors, students discuss strategies for approaching coursework in various subjects. They meet with counselors to discuss their academic plans and courses of study.
Opportunities for travel allow Stanford OHS students to get to know one another in person while experiencing a new place or culture. See examples of school trips organized for OHS students from recent years:

Voice of the Student Body
The Stanford OHS Student Government plays an instrumental role in the school community. In addition to hosting assemblies and social events, Student Government contributes to discussions with the administration on policy, school projects, and issues relevant to the student body as a whole.
In addition to the Student Body President, Vice President, and Secretary, who serve in a leadership capacity, OHS Student Government comprises two representatives from each high-school grade and two representatives from the Stanford OHS Middle School Program. These officials are elected by classmates at the beginning of each academic year.
The Student Government also includes heads of the following standing committees: Internal Review Board, Board of the Arts, Board of Club Relations, Board of Events, Board of Communications and Outreach.
Meetings are held weekly and are open to all students, upholding the mission embodied in the Stanford OHS Student Government Constitution.
