Independent Study Project

Independent Study Project

Each scholar participates in a semester-long Independent Study Project, choosing their topics from areas of emerging interest. Our Core Competencies of Creative Problem Solving, Language Arts and Technology are fully integrated into all individual classes, including the Independent Study Project.

 
In Depth Study

The Independent Study Project allows scholars to fully explore an area of interest, expanding and solidifying their expertise in a given topical area. Working with their Academic Advisor, scholars develop and refine their projects, presenting them in relaxed classroom settings as well as formal semester-end parent conferences.

 
Supporting Individuality

Scholars express what they’ve learned in different ways. Some prefer written expression while others may do better with technology, social action or visual mediums. Scholars will be given options, when practical, to select their own modes of expression.
