Learning is structured around the four questions of the education and career/life planning inquiry process (Who am I? What are my opportunities? Who do I want to become? What is my plan for achieving my goals?) Student learning in the education and career/life planning program takes place through:
- a variety of developmentally appropriate learning activities and programs related to the curriculum
- school-wide activities and processes
- activities in the community
Students in Kindergarten through Grade 6 are encouraged to “document” what they are discovering about themselves and their opportunities – in pictures, comments, letters to parents or peers, or in any other way they might choose – in a portfolio called “All About Me” In Grades 7 to 12, students build on the learning reflected in their portfolio as they develop their Individual Pathways Plan, which has a particular focus on making successful transitions to secondary school and their initial postsecondary destination.
