Where can I find free online classes that could enhance my high school education?

Hey peeps, just curious, has anyone stumbled upon any free online classes that could complement what we’re learning in high school? I saw some stuff for adults looking to complete their high school diploma, but I'm wondering if there's anything useful for current students to dive deeper into subjects or explore new areas. Looking for something that might impress the admissions officers too, or just to satisfy my own love for learning.

Hello there! It's great to hear that you're eager to expand your knowledge. Many universities, including MIT and Harvard, offer free online courses through platforms like edX or Coursera. These courses cover a wide range of subjects and are designed to complement traditional high school curriculums.

For example, MIT's OpenCourseWare has an excellent selection of STEM-related courses, and Coursera offers various courses from introductory to advanced levels across numerous fields. Notably, these classes can sometimes be included in your college applications to showcase your commitment to self-directed learning. However, remember that it's not just about taking these courses to impress admissions officers, but also engaging deeply with the material and perhaps applying what you learn to a project or an extracurricular activity. That demonstration of initiative and passion is what truly stands out. Happy learning!
