Students fulfill the State's Culminating Project requirement through our Advisory program.
There are three requirements: A Portfolio, 20 Hours of Community Involvement, and A Presentation.
The portfolio consists of a compilation of best works that students complete through their high school career. Students will be required to submit documentation to their advisors of best works in the areas of reading/writing, math, creative/artistic production and entries of personal choice. A checklist for students can be downloaded from the files below.
The second element is community involvement. Our students are required to complete a minimum of 20 community involvement hours. These hours can take the form of community service such as volunteering at a hospital, working with a service organization such as Boys and Girls Club, or career exploration through job shadowing an expert in a career of interest. Up to 10 hours can be related to a school service project. The community member who the student is working with will be asked to complete a community involvement form, which can be dowloaded below.
CLASS OF 2013: 20 COMMUNITY CONTACT HOURS WERE DUE MARCH 22, 2013.
CLASS OF 2014: 20 COMMUNITY CONTACT HOURS ARE DUE FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 2014 BY 2:00. Current juniors can begin accumulating hours beginning April 13, 2013.
The third element is a presentation, which will be fulfilled through the spring student-led conference. During the conference students will present their portfolio of best work and advisory documentation, articulate their post high-school plan, and reflect on their community involvement.
