Sweetwater Secondary School is an independent study, public school option serving students in grades 7-12. Like all public schools, it is tuition-free.
Sweetwater students are offered the freedom to accelerate, the focus to catch-up, and the support to graduate. Sweetwater teachers are “on-demand” in the Resource Centers, ready to offer one-on-one support to any student. Teachers assign courses based on each student’s academic and career plans, which are made with the help of counselors and parents upon enrollment. In addition, a variety of additional Student Pathways that frequently align better with individual student needs are available.
The Sweetwater university model of coursework uniquely prepares students for post-secondary education, as students focus on 1-2 courses at a time, and each course takes 4-6 weeks. All Sweetwater resource centers offer a quiet, distraction-free learning environment.
One Sweetwater credit is equivalent to one full, high school semester.
