In addition to the Modules and online coursework offered, the iSchool requires students to complete various Core Experiences. Because iSchool students are able to choose their courses starting in the 9th grade, all iSchool students will graduate after four years having had an individualized and different high school experience. There are, however, certain courses that all iSchool students must take. These Core Experiences are designed to provide students with the academic skills and experiences necessary for high school graduation, college acceptance, and college success. Courses such as literature seminars, writing workshops, and scientific thinking and laboratory experiences teach students important work habits, habits of mind, and communication skills that will be required of students in their academic careers.
