Independent Study


Students can pursue independent study with the help of an expert in the field of interest.  Independent studies must be approved by administration.  Contact the office for more information.

  • Collaborating with an expert in the field of interest, the student will design a course of reading and projects that will expand his or her understanding and knowledge beyond the traditional classroom content of a survey course. 
  • Proposals must include a general outline of the course plan with the approval of the faculty supervisor.
  • Independent studies are typically done through a Schaeffer Academy faculty member, but this is not a requirement.
