9th-12th Grade Independent Study

About our Program

The Independent Study program provides an educational alternative for secondary students who have the ability, study skills, motivation, and self-discipline to learn independently under the supervision and support of a credentialed secondary education teacher who assigns and evaluates all coursework as their Advisor. 

Independent Study students may desire an accelerated learning program, a flexible schedule to pursue a career goal, or may simply learn better in an independent program with one-to-one interactions with a credentialed teacher.  Students meet weekly with their Advisor to review progress in their classes. When students need further assistance they can schedule one on one meetings with their Advisor. Students will be asked to come to campus for specific class requirements such as labs, presentations, or other assigned tasks.

Part Time Enrollment
