About Us

Centinela Valley Independent Study School (CVISS) offers students a different way of learning where a student is guided by a teacher, but does not take classes with other students every day.  Rather, the student works independently, meeting with a teacher at the school site at a minimum of one hour per week.  Students who participate in independent study take the same courses as students in regular classes, and maintain the same level of course rigor.  While enrollment in CVISS is voluntary, students may be asked to return to a traditional program if they are not finding success in an independent study environment.  Independent study programs are designed to help students who have health problems, are parents, are gifted, are working, or who find that regular classroom settings do not meet their needs.  All coursework at CVISS is web-based using Edgenuity curriculum.
