What unique learning strategies are available at CHS?November 30, 2018 3:24 pm
The Collegiate High School, while embracing technology and reading across-the-curriculum, sets itself apart from tradition based education with several innovative programs. Among these are a unique academic seminar experience that helps students bridge the gap between high school and college and between college and career.
An innovative “culture of reading” integrates reading in unique and applicable ways throughout the entire curriculum and has resulted in top FCAT scores.
From our guest reader program, a READ THIS! selection guide, and visiting guest authors, to reading specific courses and seminars, the Collegiate High School is replete with opportunities to celebrate and cultivate excellent reading and writing skills.
A philosophy of “education by demonstration” at the Collegiate High School is practiced from the sophomore year to the senior year with student lead conferences and the Capstone program.
The annual student led conference allows our students a scheduled time to review their academic progress and goals with their parents to demonstrate personal responsibility and accountability.
The senior Capstone Project, a Collegiate High School graduation requirement, provides students an opportunity to study their own interests in greater depth and breadth. Through the Capstone experience, students assume responsibility for their own learning by active involvement in collecting, selecting and reflecting on their education experiences at the Collegiate High School.
