WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE
Students are allowed ample time to complete coursework, & are also allowed to accelerate in course completion.
Coursework completion is required for students to prepare for assessments. In core subjects, students earn credits by earning a passing grade in assessments taken.
To graduate in 4-years, students are expected to study independently a minimum of 6 hours a day, & earn 2 credits per week. Students behind on credits will need to complete more credits per week.
Minimum required weekly attendance on-site is 2 hours. This includes 1 hour of appointment scheduled individualized learning & 1 hour of assessment.
All students are encouraged to be on-site as their schedule permits, to study in a conductive educational environment and participate in any school activities
Students who are behind credits are expected to be on-site completing more assessments, to earn additional credits needed.
Students who struggle to adapt to our program and requirements will be referred to an alternative or assigned high school to better serve the students' needs.
