alison-m_rab1790_lg

Greetings GWUOHS Parents, Learning Coaches, and Families,

As summer is quickly approaching, the GWUOHS staff has been busy planning some exciting events over the next few months.  I wanted to highlight some of these “happenings” for all of you, since I know you are also preparing for your summer:

Graduation preparations are under-way, and we are so excited to welcome our graduating class and families on GWU’s Foggy Bottom campus.  In addition to the commencement ceremony, we have activities planned for our students, including our Capstone Presentations and community-service events in Washington, DC.  For more information on graduation weekend, please access the announcements on your landing page or contact me at amistretta@gwuohs.com.

The GWUOHS staff also has been designing a variety of Summer Academies to keep students engaged in learning throughout the summer.  These fun workshops will cover many facets for academic growth, including sessions for science/math, Advanced Prep, college-prep, academic success, and liberal arts.  For complete information, please visit https://www.k12courses.com/ (go to “Supplementary” and then “Online Summer Academies).  Feel free to refer any interested friends or family members, too!

And, finally, please don’t forget about our current re-enrollment promotions, which will be occurring through the end of June.  We would like nothing more than for you to join us for another exciting and fulfilling school year.

Here’s to the start of a wonderful summer!

All my best,
Alison Mistretta

Introducing Our 2017 Graduation Speaker…
Vendela Dente

I’m Vendela Dente. I have been doing online schooling for all my four years of high school. I started GWUOHS in sophomore year because I needed more of a challenge.  At GWUOHS, I have been able to explore my interests. I have taken an average of 8 classes per semester – with an extra year of Math and Spanish. I am a part of the school newspaper “YAWP”, and  the Medical Team. I am an editor at the Writing Center, and I am the NHS President.  Given the flexibility that was granted through online schooling, I have been able to travel the world with my dad for his business, volunteer weekly at the Red Cross, and take classes at my local state university to further my interests and develop a sense of self before I leave home for college.  For my next four years, I plan on studying International Political Economy in the 3-3 law program at Fordham University on the Loyola Scholarship and the full grant.

Re-Enrollment for 2017-18

If you have not yet made our enrollment team or your student’s advisor aware of your intention to re-enroll for next year, please do so! Through June 30, 2017, re-enrolling families are eligible for $500 off tuition. Please contact your student’s advisor for details.

 GWUOHS Annual Virtual Science Fair
Whitney Keatonž

GWUOHS Parent Newsletter April 2017

A Message From Our Head of School

alison-m_rab1790_lg

Greetings GWUOHS Parents, Learning Coaches, and Families,

As we officially enter our re-enrollment season, I want to thank you for the confidence and support you have demonstrated toward GWUOHS over this past school year.  You have been an integral part in the continued efforts to make our school the best it can be.

With the support of the dedicated GWUOHS staff and learning coaches, our students have exceeded our expectations this school year, inside and out of the classroom.  Our passing rates and engagement-levels continue to be impressive; our students are actively involved as leaders in our clubs and activities; many have inspired us with the impact they made on individuals in need via service-learning events;  and we have had numerous students publicly acknowledged for their amazing extracurricular work.  Also, our seniors’ acceptance rates at major colleges and universities continue to be outstanding, as well as the impressive scholarships that are being offered to our 2017 graduates.  I feel all of these successes are reflective of the incredible community we have built – together.

We could not value our current students more, as they form an experienced base for our school, serving as “leaders” and role-models to the new students who will join us in the Fall. In addition, we value you, our returning families, as you contribute to the ever-growing sense of community at our school.  I sincerely hope that you will join us for another exciting and fulfilling school year.

All my best,
Alison Mistretta

GWUOHS Parent Newsletter December 2015

A Message from our Head of School

By Staci Kimmons

Dear GWUOHS Families,

We’re excited to announce that a group of students and teachers from GWUOHS are traveling on an educational tour to Venice, Florence and Rome during Spring Break 2017. At one time or another, each of these cities was among the most important in the world. Venice was a major naval power, and it still has a firm grip on the world’s romantic imagination. Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance, and that artistic tradition still thrives. In Rome, majestic sights like the Coliseum recall its long imperial reign.

If you would like to learn more about this exciting opportunity, join us for an information session on Friday, January 8th at 11 am EST (see link on Class Connect calendar). You can also visit our tour website HERE

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. – Ray Bradbury


Student Spotlight

We are so proud of GWUOHS junior Annabel Annuziata who has just launched her own online fashion and home furnishings business called beautyatitsfinest.com. She launched in the US late November and in her native, Canada Dec 1, 2015. Annabel said she approached her parents about an online business when she was 14, but had to do all the research and planning to prove she was ready to take on such a big responsibility.  To prove her dedication, she contacted wholesalers who drop ship to supply her products and fulfill orders and then hired a website designer to help bring her vision to life.  She is planning on attending university for marketing and e-commerce.
