Independent Study

INDEPENDENT STUDY

Students in grades 10-12 may apply for the opportunity to do independent work in school, using teachers as consultants. An Independent Study may take place over the course of a full year (5 credits) or over the course of a semester (2.5 credits). Approval of students for an Independent Study will be based on several factors:

  1. Purpose         
  2. Intellectual Ability
  3. Aptitude for Inquiry
  4. Imagination
  5. Curiosity
  6. Viability of Proposal
  7. Interest

Previous academic accomplishments, supervisor recommendation, and personal interviews will be considered strongly in determining a student’s acceptance into the program. Students will work with a teacher who will direct the student’s research and assess his/her achievement. Independent Study may include a course offered by an approved institution of higher education. Academic credits are earned for all Independent Study on a pass/fail basis. Applications are available in the Counseling Department and must be completed prior to the beginning of a course term.
