This packet is designed to guide you through the process of creating your senior portfolio. Please read the directions carefully and ask your advisor for assistance whenever necessary. Your portfolio is a tool that can be used to impress employers and college registrars. It will reflect your academic ability, maturity, and motivation; therefore, it is in your best interest to create a professional document that presents you in the very best possible manner.
A portfolio is a collection of evidence that showcases your accomplishments in academics, extra-curricular activities, community service, and personal interests. You will research and document a career that interests you and then collect evidence of the work you have done to prepare yourself for this career. You will be given a list of documents you must include in your portfolio, but in addition to this you will have the flexibility of including the work you are most proud. Your senior portfolio is meant to reflect who you are and what you plan to be. Use your creativity to build this project into something you will be proud to share with family, friends, teachers, employers, and college admission boards. Good luck, and remember to ask for help as often as you need it.
