Independent Study Option



Santa Ynez Valley High School recognizes that some families come to us with special circumstances and individual needs. For this reason students have the option to enroll in SYVUHSD’s Independent Study Option (ISO) program. ISO has been restructured this year based on new state requirements and will provide an instructor-facilitated college-prep A-G program where students utilize an online curriculum predominately independently. Studies are still overseen, but allow for an alternative to the traditional classroom learning atmosphere.


If you wish to request a conference for your pupil, please contact your students guidance counselor to discuss the options. If you are considering independent study, please let the counselor know by August 4 so that we have accurate enrollment numbers when making class assignments and while planning for the new school year.
