Independent Study

Our fundamental belief that all children are intrinsically motivated learners and ultimately capable of directing their own learning drives all elements of our program, especially our Independent Study. At least once a week all students are involved, in developmentally appropriate ways, in the process of:

  • Identifying personal interests
  • Setting goals
  • Finding resources
  • Planning and following through on projects
  • Documenting their process
  • Self-reflecting and sharing outcomes

Students are encouraged to pursue their interests and passions as they learn to take responsibility for their choices and share their achievements.
