Sierra Hills Education Center (SHEC) is an independent study program for grades K-12.  The school employs two FTE teachers who work out of three locations in the district: the district office, Gold Strike High School and West Point Elementary. SHEC currently maintains an enrollment of 60 students. 

Students in this home-based instructional program work independently, using textbooks and/or an online format, toward their high school diploma or other appropriate educational goals dependent on grade level. High school courses in SHEC are not currently UC/CSU approved however students earn a diploma and may enter community college. SHEC students and/or guardian enter into a contract with their teacher to meet weekly and receive assignments and instruction.
