Presentations of Learning

Each spring, IACS 9th-11th graders create Presentations of Learning. These formal presentations serve to reflect upon important learning, improve public speaking skills, and to revise work to a level of excellence worthy of public presentation.

In the presentations, students talk about their personal and academic growth, highlighting several pieces of work as evidence of that growth. Students present to an audience of peers, adults and family members.

Senior Project

All seniors work on a year-long independent project of their own design: the Senior Project. The project is based around three fundamental components: completing academic research, seeking out a mentor, and creating an "applied piece" that represents the hands-on culmination of their year of learning. In the Spring, Seniors present their work in a formal presentation.
