3. Selection Standards
Legacy IOHS utilizes a holistic approach to evaluate prospective candidates’ applications. We assess each student’s capacity to thrive in our rigorous online program based on the online application and supporting documents, student essay, interview(s), and test scores. While we recognize that test scores are not complete indicators of talent and intellectual ability, they do provide critical insight about a student’s general cognitive ability relative to other students, and they help to ensure that admitted students would excel in our rigorous courses.
Parents will receive an email when their child’s application is complete. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions regarding pending applications.
