About 80 full-time students attend an online high school operated out of a Stanford University building. At a cost of about $13,000 per year, students can take part in the gifted curriculum taught primarily by instructors who have doctorates from Stanford. Classmates may be around the globe, but they still have access to more traditional student activities. "There is a student government, there's a newspaper, there's a yearbook, there's a math team, there's a literary journal, there's a culinary society," a program official said.
