Introduction to Learning Units
Learning Units provide a way for students to measure the progress they are making
toward fulfilling their graduation requirements. Each Learning Unit is the equivalent
of 60 hours of class time. A course taken at New Vista for 1 learning unit in a
single quarter is the equivalent of a semester-long course taken for 5 credits
at a traditional high school. At New Vista, this system of Learning Units applies
to all learning experiences students pursue in and out of school.
Credits earned from programs and institutions outside of New Vista
are translated into Learning Units.
