 Senior Portfolio Project:

Seniors earn 1.0 credit when they complete the Senior Portfolio Project which is required for graduation. Requirements and recommendations for the Senior Portfolio Project will be reviewed with each student at their annual guidance conference.

During the Senior year each student is assigned a faculty advisor. The advisor will help guide the senior to successful completion of the project and will report progress for grading purposes. Seniors will be graded with a P = Pass or an F = Fail depending on their success in meeting the objective on time.

         Senior year due dates are announced in the spring of the Junior year.

Annual Recommendation: Students should document the following items and place them in their portfolio each year so that data is as complete and accurate as possible for the senior year:

  • High School and Beyond Plan
  • Activities Log
  • Collect award certificates.
  • Collect examples of your best work

 Go to our Senior Portfolio website for details.
