WHAT IS PCCAPS?

 

PCCAPS is an elective for 11th & 12th graders in which students develop "Success Skills" (a.k.a. 21st Century Skills) through working on real-world projects for companies and organizations. Project types fall within the industry fields of engineering, coding, business solutions, health sciences, digital design and primary education. Student's have the option of onsite visits with their clients. Experience is guided by the principles of Project Based Learning (PBL): a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects.

 

In combination with fundamental knowledge (reading, writing, science and math), Project Based Learning models facilitate growth in: collaboration, problem solving, self management, effective communication, perseverance and good work habits.

 

PCCAPS provides a supportive environment where students self-discover how real-world teams function to produce solutions and deliverables. Volunteer mentors from a wide range of professions serve to support program goals by offering project feedback throughout the semester.
