Research Program

Our research program connects students with professors from top universities who are leading groundbreaking research in their field.  Students take an online or in-person course focused on the professor's area of research, and work closely with the professor to write an academic research paper. This program is open to students of all ages, but it is better suited for high school students with previous course knowledge or undergraduate students looking to add to their resume.

Online College Credit Courses

Our online college credit courses are designed for any student looking to earn additional college credit or explore different career options while saving time and money. Unlike regular online courses that rely on self-studying, iStar Class courses are taught in real-time, allowing for teacher/student interaction, group discussions, and immediate feedback. Additionally, lectures and lecture materials are available after class to reinforce lessons.
