ABOUT

A flexible, personalized independent study setting for grades 7-12


Our school was founded in 2001, with the mission of enabling students in grades 7--12 who had dropped out or were at risk of dropping out of traditional schools to become motivated again to learn, to develop a desire to complete their high school education and earn a high school diploma. We continue this mission today and welcome any student who, through encouragement and an individualized study program, wishes to become a self-motivated, competent, life-long learner.

We help students become an educated person in the 21st Century: a scholar, a healthy physical being, a community member, a citizen of the world, and a member of an increasingly technical and information-based world.

HOW DO WE OPERATE?

33
1 Course per Quarter

The typical student completes one academic course per quarter. In addition, s/he keeps a log of fitness activities and engages in other learning opportunities available in his/her community.

The logs and work products a student creates each week translate into credits toward graduation and serve as evidence that s/he is attending school.
33
Independent Study

Our primary mode of learning is independent study. Students work at their own pace through clear, high-quality textbooks. Supports such as teachers, tutors, on-site classes, and on-site resources (computers, study areas, etc) are available to support the student’s independent effort. The pace is set by the student: faster, slower, or the same as the pace leading to graduation in 4 years of high school.
33
Regular Instructor Feedback

Students typically meet with a supervising teacher once each week to turn in work, get feedback, and get new assignments.

 

WHO CAN ATTEND?

Any student in grades 7--12 who is younger than 20 years old is eligible to enroll. We serve students who are English learners, students with disabilities, and students with interrupted schooling.

I think it’s a great opportunity to make new friends. Not only that, but to graduate early, or to get your grades up. The tutors and teachers are a big part of it. They give you the tools to apply yourself to your work.
