What is Independent Study?

Independent study is a different way of learning. In independent study, a student is guided by a teacher but generally does not take classes with other students every day. The student works independently.

Independent study is available for children and adults. Many school districts offer this type of education in one or more schools, but some do not. Independent study students take the same courses as students in regular classes. A school district cannot force a student to participate in independent study. Students choose independent study on their own. It is designed to help students who have health problems, are parents, are working, or who find that the regular classroom does not meet their needs.
