Career Life Connections provides students an opportunity to become familiar with this ongoing cycle.

Emphasis will be placed upon lifelong learning and active citizenship to
foster career life opportunities.
Capstone is a learning opportunity for students to reflect and share in personally meaningful way, and is a requirement for Career-Life Connections and for graduation. The purpose of the capstone is for students to demonstrate the knowledge, competencies and passion(s) that they can offer the world, as they integrate personal interests and strengths with preferred future possibilities.
