Transfer to Connecting Waters as Senior?
Hi, I have a junior who has been in private school since kindergarten, thanks to financial aid. That all came crashing down this February after he missed too much school due to stress related illness, and we were abruptly counseled out (ie forced to withdraw). This has been a traumatic process in some ways, but his stress level has improved... Hmmm. He is finishing up second semester core classes (English, alg 2,American history) at a very expensive 1:1 school. But senior year is not an option there, financially. And he is refusing regular HS. I've been looking at independent study programs. We live in SF and I am waiting to hear back from Independence, but I wanted to hear about folks' experience with Connecting Waters. He will have completed almost all of the graduation requirements listed on their website. We have decided not to go to a 4 year college, even tho he will have all his a-g other than senior English... less stress is better right now. He is turning 18 this summer, and I would prefer him to end up with a diploma from an accredited school, instead of the chspe or ged. But I am utterly clueless in how a charter independent school program works day to day. Looking at CW"s graduation requirements, he may only need econ, gov, health, and career. Am I crazy to consider this an option? How do these classes work? Is it all online, workbooks, and monthly meetings? Or once our missing grad reqs are figured out by CW do we work with them to develop the needed approach? Obviously I have a lot of questions. Any answers are appreciated.
