Personalized Home Study (High School)

Serving Kern, Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties

iLEAD Exploration is passionate about personalized learning, offering customizable options for high schoolers to satisfy graduation requirements. Under the guidance of an educational facilitator, counselor, and college advisor, high schoolers create a standards-based individualized learning plan and assignment work record (ILP/AWR) that encompasses a combination of tutoring, flexible a-g curriculum options, and online courses to support their college and career goals. Instructional funds are used to support and enhance each learner’s individualized learning plan.

Our dedicated, caring, and highly qualified staff will partner with your family to plan, advise, and encourage throughout the high school years. The educational facilitator will work with the family prior to the learning period to develop meaningful, standards-based assignments using the learner’s passions/interests, curriculum and educational activities. During weekly check-ins or monthly learning period meetings, families will share all learning activities and assignments from their individualized learning plans. Work samples are collected for every subject, and parents will sign a learning log to verify student engagement.

iLEAD Exploration also values community, providing opportunities to foster friendships through a variety of activities, including ASB, National Honor Society, field studies, service projects, webinars, enrichment activities, and other social gatherings. Once learners fulfill their graduation requirements, they may participate in our end-of-the-year graduation ceremony.


Our Paths

High school should be a time of discovery, curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. Our high school options allow learners the flexibility to pursue their interests and passions as they explore college and career interests.

1. Customized Track

Learners who choose customized instruction follow a flexible plan that is developed with the parent, high school counselor, and educational facilitator. The customized path includes a variety of course options and requires 180-210 credits to graduate depending upon your learner’s passions and goals.

2. A-G Track

Learners who are planning on directly attending a University of California (UC) or California State University (CSU) are required to complete specific UC Admissions Requirements during their high school experience. These a-g requirements may be met with iLEAD in a variety of ways. If an a-g vendor offers AP courses, then those classes are accessible to our iLEAD learners as well. Check with your educational facilitator for additional a-g and AP courses that are approved for our program. This track requires 240 credits to graduate.
