Independent Study Information:

The Independent Study (IS) Program at Hillsborough High School is designed to provide opportunities for students to extend or explore learning experiences not available in the current program of studies.

The student may pursue this in a variety of ways. Click the links below for specific information about the requirements for each experience.

1. As an independent project which extends or enriches a course offered by the school (EIS)
2. As a community service activity (CS)
3. As a career exploration experience (CE)

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..
