Through the Graduation Pathway Model, students can take classes specifically designed for their future career and graduate with advanced high school diplomas, college dual credit, and industry certifications in a broad range of career fields. Graduation pathways allow students to demonstrate the employability skills needed for success in a rapidly changing, diverse, and technical society.
High School Diploma
Students must meet the defined diploma credit and curricular requirements of ONE of the following diplomas.
Project-based learning allows students to gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge. The project is framed by a meaningful problem to solve or a question to answer, at the appropriate level of challenge. Students engage in a rigorous, extended process of asking questions, finding resources, and applying information. Students often make their project work public by explaining, displaying and/or presenting it to people beyond the classroom.
Examples include but are not limited to completion of a research project, or certain school courses that have been approved by the Indiana State Board of Education.
