The Honors Independent Graduation Project program gives
qualified students an opportunity to explore an issue, question, or
topic that is relevant and meaningful. Students do extensive research,
connect with the community outside of the school, and then make and/or
do something that demonstrates new thinking and understanding. The
program serves many purposes. Through the development of a project,
students will make and deepen connections within the community, reflect
on themselves as learners and thinkers, and prepare themselves for some
of the challenges and opportunities that await them after graduation.
Students sharpen and deepen important 21st century skills such as
information synthesis, collaboration and communication, creativity and
innovation, and project management.
