This program is designed for juniors and seniors who are highly motivated and organized and who have a passion to pursue a subject or topic in great depth. The student designs her program with a faculty member who serves as her facilitator. The burden of responsibility for learning falls directly upon the student. Students interested in developing an independent study course must first meet with the Principal, who will provide guidance through the development of a proposal. The Principal will give final approval of the proposed course, faculty facilitator, means of assessment, and amount of credit granted.
