Senior P.A.C.E. Project
It takes the place of the existing senior project with many of the same components; including 20 service hours, an 8-9 page research paper, a portfolio and an 8-10 minute technology based board speech. There are many changes to this program that are designed to help students choose subjects/topics that they are passionate about and hope to pursue as a career, hobby etc…
All seniors must successfully complete all phases of Bonita P.A.C.E., which is 50% of the senior English course grade, in order to pass English Composition, a requirement to earn a Bonita High School Diploma.
What is P.A.C.E.?
P.A.C.E. stands for Purposeful, Active, Career Exploration. The emphasis of P.A.C.E. is for students to choose projects and topics that they are truly passionate about and would like to explore further. The ultimate goal of P.A.C.E. is to help students identify the passions they have in life, explore them and hopefully find ways to turn them into career opportunities.
How does the P.A.C.E. program work?
The P.A.C.E. program utilizes a number of tools to help students identify the passions and talents they have in life in order to identify the college majors they are interested in and ideally the careers that they are most interested in pursuing. The idea behind this is that students who are passionate about their learning are better and more successful students, so why not set them on a path toward learning about something they love to do? No matter the path, everyone must take the first step to find their P.A.C.E.
Areas the program covers:
– Personality, interest and college readiness/identification process
– College Applications
– College Application essays
– Letters of Recommendation
– Social Etiquette
– Non-college options
