Independent Study Programs

Winning STEP® College & Career Preparation Independent Study Programs

Take advantage of our research-based programs for students and adults through Internet-Based Independent Study. Our independent study courses have received enthusiastic Student Response. These programs are self-paced so that you can complete the reading and activities at their own rate. This gives you the ability - and the responsibility - to complete the lessons you need when you need them. In addition, if you choose to receive emails from Winning STEP®, we will automatically send you updates and reminders of important due dates.

We look forward to helping you STEP Up to Your Future. If you have questions about any of our Winning STEP® Publications or Programs, please Contact Us today!
