Q&A

 
Q   Is independent study easier than a traditional high school?
 Some students work better independent of the classroom teacher.  Other students require daily instruction from a classroom teacher.  In some cases, independent study is more difficult for students.
 
Q   Can I earn credits faster than at other schools?
A   For the highly motivated student, it may be possible to accelerate their classes and possibly graduate early.
 
Q   When do I attend school?
A   Students make weekly appointments between Monday and Thursday 7:30am and 12:30pm.  
 
Q   Can a student attend class more than once per week?
A   Yes, if a student needs additional instruction or help, they may attend more than once per week.
 
Q   What if I miss a weekly appointment?
A   Students are required to attend at least once per week.  If a student must miss their weekly appointment, then they are required to make up that appointment in the same week.
 
Q   Is independent study an accredited program?
A   Yes, independent study is an accredited program through BOHS and BCHS as well as clearinghouse approved.
