What Independent Studies Classes Are Like

Independent courses help students earn academic credit for extracurricular activities they are already doing. Students often put in long hours practicing musical instruments, competing on an athletic team, or participating in internships. Students can earn credit for these activities provided they log roughly 60 hours of practice/performance during the semester, complete brief monthly reports, and receive instruction from a qualified professional.

Additionally, students may earn credit for learning math skills using a curriculum other than Williamsburg’s through our Independent Math courses.
