Independent Study

Independent Study courses are self-paced, project-based courses designed to enhance curriculum development and encourage individual growth. They provide a framework for exploring a topic or strategy, but allow teachers to choose their own foci and readings (from a recommended list). Course topics range from teaching methodologies and ecoliteracy to Common Core and classroom management, with an option to design your own course if you don’t see your topic of passion represented (Special Project for Individualized Learning).

Business Readiness Certificates

Business leaders, including hiring managers, across several industries report that a “skills gap” exists between the attributes they look for in prospective new hires and staff seeking promotions and the attributes they want to see in these same individuals. The gap isn’t in the technical skills needed. It is in the individual’s interpersonal communication skills, project management skills, ability to work in a team environment, and other “soft skills”. In addition, they report that the individual really set up for success is the person with business acumen.

IT Professional Certificates

Participate in the education and training that business owners and other key business decision makers prescribed as required for specific IT focused career paths. Earn certifications and the possibility of academic credit as you focus on specified information technology emphasis areas and the business acumen and leadership skills employers defined as required for these career paths.
