About Us

Shasta County Independent Study (SCIS) is an alternative to conventional educational settings, allowing 6-12th grade students to complete coursework independently under the supervision of a credentialed teacher. Students meet individually with an assigned teacher a minimum of one time per week. SCIS is voluntary and provides the flexibility to meet students’ specific needs, interests, and learning styles. Our Independent Study teachers utilize State and district-adopted curriculum to ensure students meet or exceed California graduation requirements. Instruction is offered at two locations in Redding—one at 3711 Oasis Road, and the other on the Shasta College campus.
