Independent Study Module
Independent Study Modules (ISMs) are designed to cultivate lifelong learning habits as well as build an academic and professional portfolio.
Each academic year in high school, students complete an independent study module, for which they receive one-half unit of academic credit.
These modules allow students to pursue their unique areas of interest. Academic advisors play a key role in guiding and empowering students to develop their own perfect study module.
Independent Study Modules follow a three-term arc: Research, Application, and Presentation.
At the end of this progression students will have developed robust independent learning skills, pursued an idea within their own interest area, and developed a presentation to share their learning with their fellow students.
