Independent study is a different way of learning. In independent study, a student is guided by a teacher but usually does not take classes with other students every day. The student works independently.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to be involved in their student's education including by sharing a sustained interest in their student's performance, and by assuring the student has a home environment conducive to independent learning.
Independent Study teachers meet weekly with students, by appointment. Students are required to complete a minimum of 25 hours of coursework weekly.
