If your high school doesn't offer it, your only real choice is a college/university course.

Most colleges allow people to take single classes (sometimes they will call these students "Undeclared" ) . I am not too certain if there's a high school diploma requirement for taking classes in this way, however. You would have to ask your local college/university.

Also, some colleges do make courses that are high school level, but again, that's not every college. And yes, you would have to pay for the course itself, but one class is nowhere near the cost of a full college tuition, so it may be in your (or your parents' ) budget after all.

Aside from that, self-study is one of your only recourses. Audio instructional CDs may also help you, but the best (Pimsleur) tend to be about as pricey as a college course.
