Graduation Project

For the 2017-2018 school year, a graduation project is not a requirement for graduation.

The link to the handbook (below) will guide students through the process of completing a successful graduation project.

Of utmost importance is the fact that the Graduation Project is a graduation requirement. Students who do not complete a project cannot receive a Carlynton High School diploma.

The Graduation Project is a presentation activity that demonstrates the student’s ability to apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate a selected topic and communicate significant knowledge and understanding to the teacher. Students select a theme for the project and compiles information about their topic through extensive research and a written paper. The activity also requires the preparation of visual props or a display of proficient knowledge of the theme by means of a demonstration.

The graduation project enhances the student’s composition and research skills, oral communication skills, organizational skills and creative thinking skills.

Students who follow the guidelines and meet all necessary deadlines will effectively complete the project and have a rewarding experience doing so. A brief outline of the project process is as follows:

  • Choose an advisor for the project. The advisor must be a Carlynton High School staff member.

  • Complete a portfolio that is a collection of high school work and accomplishments.

  • Complete a projection of future plans, which includes a possible career choice.

  • Meet all benchmarks demonstrating completion of portfolio criteria.

  • Give an oral presentation and participate in a student interview highlighting accomplishments and skills acquired during high school. This will be done prior to the end of the senior year before a group of faculty evaluators.

  • Important Points to Remember:
    One of the objectives of the graduation project is to teach students to prioritize their time.

  • During the year, due dates for project submissions are established and are the responsibility of each student.

  • A successful graduation project involves parent and teacher support as well as student initiative and self-discipline.
