Limited Capacity full

Are today’s high school graduates prepared for post-secondary education? The Crefeld School’s Graduation by Exhibition (GBE) model better prepares students for a smooth transition to life after high school. Crefeld staff will share details about their successful progressive GBE process that is an essential component of the school’s program.
At Crefeld, students earn their diploma through Graduation by Exhibition. This process requires students to demonstrate mastery in fifteen distinct projects. While working on each of the exhibitions, students utilize essential skills including logical reasoning, expository writing, analytical reading, research and understanding, self-reflection, engaged citizenship, and executive functioning. All of these skills prepare students for post-secondary education.
After sharing a small amount of background and philosophy about our process, we will engage participants in several of the activities that involve various structures and opportunities to interact with the exhibitions. Our workshop will be participant-centered, allowing time to hear from the group about their experiences, concerns and visions for a similar process at their schools. Attendees will leave having actively participated in progressive activities intended to solidify their understanding, as well as an understanding on how this process drives the culture of the school , and our handbook outlining the graduation by exhibition process.
