CUSD Independent Study Program

CUSD Independent Study Program (ISP)

Starting 2022-2023, CUSD families in grades 7-12 have the option to enroll in a voluntary independent study program. This model is for students and families requiring a remote learning option that offers flexibility in scheduling and implementation as students and families work closely together with a certified educator to reach educational goals. The independent study model requires students to take initiative and be mostly self-sufficient as they work independently and with the support of teachers to meet learning objectives of the course curriculum.

Secondary students that successfully complete all designated courses graduate with a high school diploma from one of Claremont Unified School District's high schools: Claremont High School or San Antonio High School.

Enrollment in this program will require a written learning agreement developed and agreed upon by a team that includes the parent, teacher, and administrator. Students may return to in-person instruction at the start of the following semester upon written request.
