What is Adult Independent Study?
 

Independent Study is an educational program that provides the opportunity for adult students 19 and older, to complete Kern High School District's diploma requirements. Most courses (including elective credits) may be taken via Independent Study.

Students work through a series of courses that meet the requirements for the Kern High School District diploma. Students work at their own pace but are required to pass at least one Unit Test per week.

Time, effort, and ability to determine the speed with which students complete course work. A grade of a 'C' or better is required to complete classes at a quicker pace.

Previous high school transcripts are accepted and applied to our district's requirements; both completed course work and partial credit are accepted. Military experience, acceptable academic college credits, and documented work experience may be applied toward fulfilling graduation requirements if specific criteria are met.

Independent Study is offered in the fall and spring semesters with an additional summer school session. Day and some evening appointments are available.

Independent study enrollees must be 19 years of age or older and pass the CASAS assessment test that is administered prior to enrollment. There is no upper age limit for enrollment in Independent Study; to date, our oldest graduate has been 78 years old! It works for everyone!
