  • Live (synchronous) Instruction - Students will have a weekly live online class lesson.

Class Schedule

Independent Study students are enrolled in a full-time schedule according to a 9-week quarter system. Students are enrolled in three courses every quarter so that at the end of two quarters, they are expected to completed six courses, the same as students receiving in-person instruction on a semester schedule.
