Independent Study

BOUSD Independent Study Program

All students of Brea Olinda High School and Brea Canyon High School can qualify for our District Independent Studies program located here on the Brea Canyon campus. Eligibility for the Independent Study program will require a Team Guidance meeting from the student's home school that should include the following persons: site administrator, school counselor, parent(s)/guardian(s) and student. Once a student is approved and enrolled in the Independent Study program they are expected to work between 30-40 hours per week independently and to complete their assignments as scheduled.  Additionally, the IS student is expected to attend a prescribed weekly appointment (scheduled Monday – Friday), to turn in their work, take competency tests and receive their assignments for the next week.  Failure to complete any of the above requirements will place the student in jeopardy of being transferred out of the Independent Study program and back to the comprehensive campus program.  For any questions on procedures for eligibility please contact your student's school counselor.
