“the place where we work together”
Academy High’s Collaboratorium is, by definition, “the place where we work together.” It is a time for discovery, exploration, and innovation, with intentional faculty instruction and assessment for students to become skilled at doing things themselves and doing things with other people. Collaboratorium allows student cohorts to pursue independent courses of study culminating in a unique project. Students hone their independent research skills, investigating areas of passion and identifying topics into which they dive deep. Faculty guide students in methodology and peer review during weekly meetings. Specialists outside Academy High mentor, offer expertise and unique insight, and provide related internship opportunities. Academy High’s Senior Capstone Project provides students the opportunity to make a multi-faceted presentation to the community, highlighting their research journey and the results of the changes they worked to effect through the process of creating their projects.
