The Independent Study Program is designed to provide opportunities for students to extend or explore learning experiences. Students may engage in Independent Study in a variety of ways: Extended or Enriched Independent Study (EIS), which allows a student to investigate an area of interest that is an extension of the current courses offered; Community Service (CS), which consists of voluntary service in a variety of school or community settings; or Career Exploration (CE), which allows the student an opportunity to explore a specific career or occupation in depth through an internship.

Independent Study is available to students in Grades 10-12; credits earned apply toward graduation but not toward class rank. Grading is Pass/Fail. The Study cannot be used to fulfill specific course requirements as specified by the Board of Education. A student doing Independent Study must secure a mentor; submit a proposal, which must be approved by a school committee; and engage in the activities without major assistance from teachers. In many cases the Study will take place outside the normal hours of the school day.
