Judging GRAD Projects is an excellent way for parents and guardians of underclassmen to find out more about this graduation requirement before your child reaches the 12th grade. 





The purpose of the GRAD Project is

  • To provide all seniors with an opportunity to demonstrate their "readiness" to enter the "grown-up world" using their skills in writing, speaking, research, and organization.
  • To provide all students with an opportunity outside the classroom to investigate and integrate their various interests and courses of study.
  • To provide all students with an opportunity to demonstrate "a sense of responsibility and a good work ethic prior to graduation".
  • To help all students develop skills in the following areas:
    • time management
    • interview skills
    • professional phone use
    • research skills
    • community awareness
    • self-directed learning

Simply, graduating seniors will be required to demonstrate not only what they know, but what they can do.
