Discovery Project courses combine online instruction and face-to-face workshops for Archdiocesan students in grades 7 and 8 who are academically gifted. Students will be exposed to a range of challenging activities to develop critical thinking and 21st century literacies.
Courses run for nine weeks and are designed to replace or enrich one quarter of the curriculum for the student’s home school. Students who select to replace their current course will work independently in a library or resource room setting with Internet access to complete daily tasks-responding to assignments and classmates comments online, completing research, writing papers and reading. Students will also experience three half-day workshops hosted at the cooperating Archdiocesan high school. Students who select the course as an enrichment would complete online requirements in addition to their regular course load.
