Format

These classes are designed to recognize learning undertaken by a student or by a small group of students. The purpose is to encourage students to become involved in the selection, planning, and organization of their own programs in specific interest areas. Student should pursue learning, in which they already have a considerable interest and/or ability, which is NOT within the scope of the regular curriculum.
