EPGY to create first online high school for gifted students
Through a generous gift from the Malone Family Foundation of Englewood, Colorado, Stanford University's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY) announces the creation of the EPGY Online High School at Stanford University. The EPGY Online High School (EPGY-OHS) will be a three-year, fully-accredited, diploma-granting, online, independent high school. Formally a part of Stanford University's Education Program for Gifted Youth, and building on EPGY's fifteen-year history of providing online courses to gifted students, the EPGY-OHS will provide gifted students with a course of study designed expressly for them in an educational environment ideally suited to helping such students realize their potential and develop their abilities. Through the EPGY-OHS, students everywhere will have the opportunity to receive an education comparable to that offered by the best schools in the world.
