Independent Study Program

High School Students

Independent Study is designed to meet the educational needs of students who are interested in pursuing a course of study beyond the requirements of high school graduation.

At the high school level, Independent Study is reserved for 11 th and 12 th grade students who have demonstrated exceptional competence within a given discipline and the ability to work independently. Please refer to the AGCS High School Program of Studies for further details.

Students who are interested in undertaking Independent Study must complete an application that is available in the Guidance Department offices.

Independent Study courses must be run and proctored by a certified teacher in order to allow for credit to be awarded. Since staff members must be willing to take on this additional instructional duty, Independent Study requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. A completed Independent Study Application including an Independent Study Proposal must be submitted to Administration in order to be considered.
