Typically, most of our students electives are taken up with Work Experience.
Students are placed in volunteer positions or paying jobs where they learn practical job related skills. Students are typically working an average of 3 hours per day (15 hours per week - 90 hours per MiniTerm) and earn credits based on their job performance as well as the number of hours worked.
Credit for work experience is awarded on the following scale:
45 – 74.75 Hours = .25 credits
75 – 134.75 Hours = .50 credits
135 – 194.75 Hours = .75 credits
195 – 254.75 Hours – 1.00 credits
If a student works for fewer than 45 hours in a Mini-Term, those hours that were worked will roll over into the next Mini-Term.
In addition to work we offer a number of other Elective classes throughout the school year, either as conventional classes or through independent study. Some of these classes are listed to the right and others will be added as the curriculum is fully developed (and as time permits).
