What are the requirements? (Enrollment)

Charter schools are open to ALL students and are committed to serving a student body that reflects the local community. As schools of choice, all charter schools are open to any student who wants to apply, regardless of where he or she lives, space permitting. Independent Study or non-classroom based schools have some geographical limitations which permit them to enroll only students from the county where they are authorized, or from adjacent counties. Charters schools are public schools. They are non-sectarian, tuition-free and open to any student who wishes to attend. Choice is a powerful tool for parents seeking access to quality education for their children.

What is Independent Study?

Short Term Independent Study is an option for students that will be absent for 3 days or longer due to illness, working on set, and other personal issues that might arise.  Students are not marked absent while on independent study and will know ahead of time what assignments they will need to complete while away.

Long Term Independent Study is a program that provides a flexible, instructional format for individual students who are unable to attend daily classes due to social, medical or professional needs.  For the non-traditional student, the Independent Study Program provides an opportunity for a comprehensive high school education offering the same high academic standards and expectations of all CHAMPS’ courses, with the ultimate goal of preparing each student for success beyond high school.
