High School Completion (HSC) - Culminating Project

All students seeking to earn their high school diploma are required to complete the High School and Beyond: Culminating Project and Post High School Plan (HSC 048) course. It introduces prospective high school graduates to the skills and strategies they'll need to complete the required culminating project.

Students who complete the HSC 048 course will be prepared to:

  • Understand the expectations, choose a topic, and create a plan to complete their culminating project.
  • Create and reflect on their plans after high school.
  • Utilize time management techniques.
  • Conduct effective research and take accurate notes.
  • Prepare an annotated bibliography.
  • Complete an exit interview or presentation that highlights their project.
