Career Life Connections (CLC)12

Welcome to Career Life Connections (CLC) 12. This class is designed to help you map out your life after graduation. It is “off-timetable”, which means that you will do a lot of work independently.

You also have access to one-on-one sessions where you get personalized support. We will discuss your options for employment and post-secondary education after you graduate. We will also work on your Capstone project that is completely customized to your interests.

Step 4 - Begin your Capstone Project

Why a Capstone Project?

A capstone project is a celebration of learning and experience.  It is designed to encourage you to think critically, solve challenging problems and develop skill sets. It is a venue to connect with the world outside of school and to demonstrate that you have the skills to further your education, enter the workforce, and/or operate a business.

What is a Capstone?

Your Capstone is a culminating project, presentation, or performance that allows you to make connections between your high school experiences and your future. For this project you will select an area of interest such as art, technology, writing, athletics, carpentry etc. If you love writing, you might create a piece of writing. If you are interested in carpentry, you might build something that demonstrates your skills. This project will be documented in your CLC portfolio in myBlueprint. When you attend your one-on-one CLC session, we will discuss options for communicating your area of interest.
