Independent Study 2018-11-07T19:18:15+00:00

Our independent study program offers a range of models as a choice for students desiring a change from traditional campus attendance. We offer community-based (off-site) independent study and SIX resource center (on-site) independent study options. Students meet weekly with their credentialed supervising teacher, and each student’s plan is designed uniquely with access to onsite math classes, UC approved courses, career training options, virtual, and online courses. Our high school students also often dual-enroll with their local community college to give them a leg up on high school graduation while saving college costs too. Academic counseling is available to all our students.  Our unique Headways credit recovery program is also available for students who have slipped behind in their high school credits.   Please click on the resource center names for complete offerings and schedules.
