About this school

School for Independent Learners (SIL) is a small, nurturing, non-public high school for grades 6-12. SIL has been granted full accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and all courses have been approved by the University of California. We offer college prep, honors, and AP coursework, as well as standardized test preparation and academic tutoring. Full-time and part-time programs are offered. Many students graduate from SIL, while other students take only one or two classes at SIL and transfer credit to their high school of record. Most of our courses are taught in a one-to-one setting - one teacher, one student. This format provides a tremendous opportunity for fast-paced growth and niche learning. Teachers tailor course content with respect to each student's goals, interests, aptitude, and motivation. A personalized academic program can be created for a student who wants a greater intellectual challenge, for an athlete who needs flexible scheduling, or for a student who feels lost and overlooked in group environments. From start to finish, a course progresses at each student's optimal pace. Despite the flexibility of our courses, we ensure that each personalized course meets (and often exceeds) California educational standards.
