This idea is one component of a broader and much more developed concept.
Inspired by the Minerva Project and the research of Robert Putnam, I envision a national network of cloud based schools. Each school would be comprised of three geographically separate campuses from across our economically and culturally divided nation into one academic community. Intentionally designed to expose all students to the full spectrum of our nation's diversity, utilizing next generation video conferencing and cloud based computing along with a semester long student exchange and shared faculty, these schools would expose all students to the full spectrum and stark reality of contemporary American culture.
As a component of this design these schools would foster the development of organic virtual communities, most closely resembling fraternities and sororities, that would seek to empower/encourage like minded students/graduates to find one another in order to encourage, mentor, support their academic/professional pursuits beyond high school.
These organizations, established during high school, would be curated by faculty/counselors who would provide college-advising and guidance, not leadership, to the students/graduates as they navigate the emerging professional landscape. I would imagine these organizations expanding and merging over time to meet the professional/academic networking needs of the group.
