Online Courses and Independent Study

Online courses

Online courses may be an option for a student to participate in online discussions and group projects while learning rigorous course content. Credit will only be given for courses taken with an accredited educational institution and pre-approved by the Stamford Public Schools.  Credit for these courses will be counted in a student’s GPA and class rank. For more information, contact your school counselor.

Independent Study

Independent Study enables a student to conduct an in-depth study of a specific topic in consultation with an advisory teacher. This course of study requires approval from the department head and is not counted in the grade point average.
