We would go to school once a week for 90 minutes. During this time we would collect our school work for the week and review and correct the work from the week prior. Best school for people who prefer to work alone or planning to graduate early.

I loved this school. I was a junior when I transferred in to the program. I had just moved 3,000 miles from the town I'd lived in for 5 years. I was uncomfortable at the local high school and opted to complete a homeschooling program at an accelerated pace. I was able to complete the program 1 1/2 years earlier than expected, top of my class, high GPA and when I left the school I'd set the best record for the California exit exam in the math category. I loved this school in the fact that they made me feel welcomed when I hadn't felt welcomed at the local high school. There was a lot of one on one time with the instructor when I was on campus and they were always available to speak to about any kind of issues. This school helped me achieve a graduation goal quicker than I had anticipated.
The room for independent study students was perfect. Teachers readily available for any questions. The guidance counselors were so friendly and helpful. They offered to complete college applications, essays and scholarship forms with me whenever was convenient for my situation.
