Our 10th grade Scholars spend the year reflecting on what their lives will be like in ten years. They envision their high school graduation, decide on colleges to attend and graduate from, and determine their career paths. They share their ten year future by creating a scrapbook which includes photos or drawings and essay prompt responses. This is one of my favorite workshops for our Scholars. When I was 15, I wanted to be a financial consultant, but I was rarely asked how I was going to get there. Obviously, my path took a different turn, but I am pleased to share with you an example of one of our ten year scrapbooks:
