The Role of Our Instructors
Live, Online Seminars
With an average class size of 12, our web-based seminars allow students to engage in every aspect of a course through real-time discussions in which instructors and students see, hear, and interact with one another.

Homeroom & Assemblies
This is a typical day in the life of Skylar, a seventh-grade Stanford OHS student living in Jackson, Mississippi. Skylar plays on a club lacrosse team, volunteers at his local animal shelter, and participates in OHS club activities. While Skylar lives in the Central Time Zone, his class schedule is in Pacific Time.

Time to Pursue Interests and Connect With Peers
Most classes at Stanford OHS don't meet on Fridays. This allows our more than 70 student-run clubs and organizations to meet virtually or in person on that day, giving students the opportunity to pursue other interests with their peers on their own. Friday is also a time for all-school assemblies and presentations by guest speakers.
Flexible Enrollment Options
Stanford OHS offers three enrollment options: full-time (four or five courses), part-time (two or three courses), and single course. This flexibility allows aspiring students to choose OHS as their only school or as a way to supplement their learning with niche courses not found at every brick-and-mortar school.
