Every student has a range of Studio Courses daily. These are additional required courses, electives or mandated services. Courses include such diverse offerings as arts and music, foreign language, fitness, advanced sciences and technology, remediation or enrichment, and counseling.  Studios may not continue through the year.  This allows students to take many types of courses throughout the year; it also enables the staff to plan courses that adapt to student needs and interests. For scores of students nationwide, youth development and enrichment programs are exactly what motivate them to stay in school. These types of courses are particularly important for students who are at risk for dropping out. By having most of our faculty strategically serve dual roles — teaching Foundation as well as Studio Courses–our schools can offer a much wider variety of courses than a conventional school its size.
