Passages is a unique part of the DCIS curriculum that provides students the opportunity to push themselves to new levels, both academically and personally. Passages challenge students to practice and develop the skills and practices that are necessary to meet our mission statement, while developing a deep passion about a subject of their choosing.
The academic rigor of Passages I focuses on the research and writing process that will enable students to succeed both in college and in life. The end product of Passages I is a fifteen page college-ready research paper that connects to the ISSN GPS learning domains. On September 17 and 18, students in Passages I will be presenting proposals to their Passages committees to receive verbal and written feedback to help guide them to refining their ideas and moving forward in their work. Click here to see a full list of student proposals.

All parents will meet in the auditorium at 6:00 for the General Session. At the conclusion of the general session, parents will follow their child’s school schedule, with each class meeting briefly followed by a passing period for parents to get to the next class. We hope to see every parent here on Thursday night!
