Open High School is a distance education language specialist school. The Open High School is part of a network of Department of Education and Training Schools which provide education to students by distance education methods. 

Subject to satisfying certain guidelines, students in NSW secondary and central schools may enrol to study a language course not available to them at their home school. Enrolment is available to both government and non-government school students.  

The basic learning materials are printed booklets and audio tapes with students returning assignments to their teacher by mail. A teacher at the home school is appointed to support this process.

The interaction between teachers and students involves many different media including telephone, print, face to face lessons, personal message cassettes, fax and computers.

The guidelines for enrolment may be viewed on the school website. Students may not enrol directly with the Open High School. All applications for enrolments must be made by the home school on behalf of the student.
