Independent Study and Seminar Program
Distinguishing talent. Developing leaders.
It is the mission of the Independent Study and Seminar Program to help students distinguish themselves in and out of the classroom by nurturing exceptional talent, engaging curiosity, and fostering self-confidence and originality. ISSP creates unique opportunities through independent study, college courses, and seminars that equip students to succeed in academics and the community.
What is ISSP?
ISSP supports high performing, college-bound students by providing opportunities including college courses, leadership and career workshops, and academic and artistic programs. ISSP Coordinators work with students to find the opportunities that best fit their interests, strengths, and schedules, serving as their mentors long the way.
In ISSP’s College Before College Program, coordinators guide students as they select and register for college classes. In addition, coordinators support students throughout their time in the college classes with conferences and evaluations.
ISSP serves students who consistently excel in their studies, as well as providing incentives for all students to earn higher marks in order to take advantage of the program’s offerings.
