ORACLE - Independent Studies Program

Program Description

Located across from the campus of San Diego City College, the ORACLE Independent Study Program at Garfield High School is an alternative to traditional schools. Students may choose the ORACLE Program when traditional school no longer fits their individual needs. Independent Study is a learning strategy successful with a number of high school students. Students work at home and meet with their teacher at least once a week. Students who are behind in credits have the opportunity to work at a faster pace to catch up with their classmates. Students are expected to fulfill the same requirements as they would in traditional school, but have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a teacher who specializes in customizing courses to fit the student's diverse educational needs and goals.
 

Appropriate Placement

ORACLE may be an educational alternative for the following students:
  • Students in grades 9 through 12 who live within the San Diego Unified School District boundaries.
  • Students who are self-motivated and who work well independently.
  • Students who want to excel.
  • Students who are credit deficient.
  • Students whose parents or guardians can monitor their progress at home.

Enrollment

Students who are currently enrolled in school should speak to their counselor to determine if the ORACLE Independent Study Program is an appropriate placement. Parent permission is required.
Students who are not currently enrolled in school need to obtain a copy of their latest transcript and bring it to the ORACLE office for evaluation.
For more information on the ORACLE program, please contact Elizabeth Curran, Counselor at (619) 362-4500 Ext. 3056 or at email address: ecurran@sandi.net.
