Need Help with Advanced (Past AP) High School Courses

  1. Aug 18, 2014 #1
    I'm going into Senior year. I live I have taken 9 (3 I paid for so they don't count as dual enrollment) dual enrollment courses and next year I'm taking 4 more. I've reached my limit on college dual enrollment courses yet I have 2 spots in my schedule. I would like to use these to take math/science/engineering courses. I am allowed more "dual enrollment" courses as long as they are from a (online) high school. I would be interest in taking college-level (above AP and courses I've already taken) classes. I saw Stanford Online High School and they are the only one I've come across so far to offer classes above AP level. There is one problem though, the price, it's about $3000 per class and my high school will only pay about $500. Anyone know of any cheaper alternatives? By the way, I've looked into high school independent study but it's only for courses the district already offers, hence nothing I wouldn't already taken.

    Listing of Previously Taken College/AP Courses:
    Calculus 1
    Calculus 2
    Calculus 3
    Differential Equations
    Linear Algebra
    Number Theory with Cryptology

    AP Chemistry - 5
    AP Physics C - 5 (on both Mechanics and E&M)
    Organic Chemistry 1
    Physical Chemistry 1 (and lab)

    Engineering Materials (and lab)
    Statics (as in Statics part of engineering mechanics)

    AP US History
    Principles of Economics (college course, basically does half of micro and half of macro)

    Taking Soon:
    Independent Study in Statistical Mechanics (at a college, out of McQuarrie, which is intended for chemistry graduate students, will also be doing some quantum out of Levine's Quantum Chemistry)
    Modern Physics
    Physical Chemistry 2
    Intro to Nanotechnology

    Anyways, any suggestions for online high schools with an adeque level of courework that I'd be able to take one or to classes at? Or possible other oppertunities. I don't mind paying part of it, but I definetly don't have the money to spend $2500 per class. Around $1000 or less per class (before my school district's $500 contribution) would be the limit.
