Independent Study and Digital Academy Instruction & Curriculum

Independent Study is an optional educational alternative available to students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.

 

Students work independently and in cohorts with the support and direction of an experienced credentialed teacher.

 

While independent study uses the district adopted curriculum and the district graduation requirements, it offers flexibility to meet individual student needs, interests and learning style.
