The Freehold Regional High School District recognizes that learning can and should follow many paths, some of which travel outside of the traditional classroom.
Successful completion of such alternative experiences can result in credit with a grade of "S" on our transcript and/or advancement to a higher level course. All experiences must begin with an application here, which allows us to ensure that the proposal meets or exceeds New Jersey and district requirements.
We applaud your child's initiative in pursuing this experience and appreciate your cooperation with the application process and its deadlines. We must examine and make determinations about all outside schools, organizations, and coaches; several days or weeks may pass before we are able to render a decision on the application. We regret that we are unable to recognize any experience that a student has begun without an approved application.Learn more about our options below.
