Independent Study -What is it ?

  • Independent Study is an alternative form of education that specializes in personalized learning to better meet the pace, ability and interests of the student. Personalized Learning provides an accommodating educational setting for students who, due to complicated life and/or school situations, do not find optimal success in their studies on the traditional campus.

Independent Study -What's in it for the Student ?

Independent Study . . .

  • provides an alternative educational opportunity for the student who has ceased participating in the educational process or who is unable to function at his/her highest potential in the traditional schooling process.
  • provides point of reentry for the student who has left the traditional school process
  • focuses on the individual educational needs of students who, because of personal, family, or financial situations, find themselves excluded from the opportunities of the traditional school.
  • provides for individualized diagnostic academic assessment and course selection for each student.
  • accommodates the needs of the student who is at-risk of being completely lost to and alienated from the large group processes common to many high school campuses.

Vista Real Charter High School recognizes that not all students learn at the same pace and offers the option to study only one course at a time.

  • continues the education of the student who is 18 years of age or older and who has not completed graduation requirements. Independent Study honors the student's struggle to interact successfully with six or more teachers in a day and provides the student with one supervising teacher who oversees all of the student's learning activities.
  • Independent Study suits the time schedule of students who must meet the responsibilities of family obligations.
  • Independent Study considers the potential of each student and is often the answer to providing a stable educational environment for youth who have made wrong or immature choices and are no longer permitted to attend the traditional campus with its multiple distractions and opportunities to repeat the same mistakes.
  • Independent Study gives the student individual access to a highly qualified credentialed faculty.
  • provides the opportunity for a student who needs to be employed to continue progressing toward graduation.What's in it for the student?
  • is a path back for the student who is behind in credits to rejoin his/her class on the traditional campus.

    Independent Study--- What's in it for the Parents ?

Independent Study . . .

  • provides a quiet, controlled and safe environment for your child to attend school.
  • allows you to spend more time with your child and to have a greater impact in his/her life.
  • you know every week how well your child has performed academically? This gives you the opportunity to intervene immediately in the event your child's achievement falls below your expectations.
  • allows you to know where your child is and allows you to more closely monitor the people with whom he/she associates.
  • accommodates the learning speed of your child. The typical student takes only one class at a time and he/she can take as much time as needed to complete the assignment.
  • gives your child the opportunity to work with just one supervising teacher instead of six or more. This allows for the teacher to more fully understand the learning strengths and weaknesses of your child and for the teacher to customize the lessons to meet your child's needs.
  • invites you to sit in on the registration and the orientation session with your child. This allows you to more fully understand the school's expectations.
