Leave and learn: Some students spend hours off campus

Center Grove High School senior Dani Patterson is taking seven classes, but she’s usually off campus each morning by 11 a.m.

Patterson is one of 114 Center Grove students who are taking online courses and don’t have to spend their entire day at school.

Once Patterson leaves school for the day she might spend a few hours at A Thousand Words Portraits, a photography studio in Greenwood, where she’s an intern and is learning to use programs such as Photoshop. Other days she has appointments or goes to see her family.
