At School for Independent Learners, the boundaries that divide disciplines are fluid.
An English student, passionate about science, might choose to read literary works exploring the physical world. A world language student can get help with Economics homework -- in Spanish.
Students can take two or more separate yet interrelated courses as a single, cohesive interdisciplinary course. While their experience is integrated, students earn credit for distinct courses, each listed separately on the transcript.
Interdisciplinary coursework includes, but isn't limited to: American Studies (US History and American Literature), Cultural Studies (World History and World Literature), AP World History combined with AP Art History, AP Literature & Composition and Philosophy, Physics and Pre-Calculus, and Photography and Creative Writing.
This year we're also teaching Big History, the ultimate integration: the study of nearly everything, from the Big Bang through modern human history!
