COVID-19 Independent Study

Independent Study

Parents/guardians who wish for their student to be considered for Independent Study for the second semester must complete the Spring 2022 Independent Study Application by November 19, 2021.

Students in the Independent Study program do not need to meet the COVID-19 vaccination requirements and will not be permitted to access in-person instruction or participate in any school activity or event on a GHC campus.

Given enrollment capacity limitations for the GHC Independent Study program in both the TK-8 and High School programs, a lottery may be conducted.
