Our academic enrichment programs take place both over the summer and throughout the academic year. SPCS provides classroom opportunities that help students discover subject material they might not otherwise experience in high school. Many of our programs are developed in close consultation with Stanford University faculty members.

Our Organization At A Glance

OHS Students

Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies was inaugurated by the Provost in 2012. SPCS is led by the Educational Outreach Programs division of Stanford Online High School (OHS), an accredited, diploma-offering, highly selective independent school for academically motivated students in grades 7-12.
