Free Online Courses for High School?

I am looking to enhance my skills and knowledge without breaking the bank. Does anyone know of free online courses that high school students like me could take?

Absolutely, there are some fantastic resources available to high school students interested in advancing their knowledge for free! Many universities offer MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) through platforms like edX and Coursera. Institutions like MIT, Harvard, and Stanford provide free courses ranging from computer science to humanities. Although there might be a fee for a certificate, auditing the classes does not cost anything.

Khan Academy is also a great resource for students who want to strengthen their skills, especially in STEM subjects. For more specialized topics, consider looking at Codecademy for coding and programming, which is free for basic courses. Duolingo can be a fun way to pick up a new language, and it's completely free. Lastly, don’t forget to check out local community colleges or online educational platforms that might offer free courses tailored to high school students.

Taking these courses can not only improve your academic prowess but also show college admissions committees your initiative and passion for self-directed learning. Good luck finding ones that are a good match for you!
