Other Academic Programs
Internship/Independent Study provides opportunities for academic enrichment beyond what is offered in the published curriculum or accessibility to coursework that cannot fit into the student’s daily schedule. This program is intended for students who have demonstrated a high degree of academic maturity and possess the aptitude to pursue coursework with greatly reduced student-teacher interaction. Students who apply for and are accepted into this program are fully responsible for keeping the program of Internship/Independent Study going until its successful conclusion.
In this program, students pursue academic credit under the supervision of a teacher endorsed or certified in the subject area being studied; they may complete credit requirements without attending regular class sessions.
A student may take only one Internship/Independent Study course per semester, and no more than four credits of Internship/Independent Study may apply toward graduation unless approved by the director of student learning. Any course specifically required for graduation may not be taken as an Internship/Independent Study, nor may specific state mandates be satisfied through Internship/Independent Study. Furthermore, students may not exceed identified course load limits during a given semester through the use of Internship/Independent Study without the approval of the director of student learning.
Any student interested in pursuing an Internship/Independent Study should consult with the sponsoring subject matter teacher and the counselor after securing parental approval. The cooperating teacher and parental approval are required to participate in this program. Final approval by the director of student learning is required.
Deadline to submit application for either semester in the 2023-2024 school year is April 28, 2023.
