The integrated curriculum begins with complex real world problems that students dig into by discussing big questions reading fiction and non- fiction texts writing persuasive informative and creative works and interacting with other eager minds. Often the highlight of the course students also participate in face-to-face meetings where they build community and participate in hands-on explorations. Instructors provide regular personalized feedback throughout the week documenting growth and encouraging reflection.

In a Project Academy four week mission students are project managers in charge of selecting planning revising and reflecting upon their plan of work. In week one students jump into action selecting a problem from a range of inquiry options. Once selected students make a plan of work join an interest group and add to the class-wide discussion about overarching issues. After four weeks of researching their problem and crafting a product students use group and instructor feedback to prepare their project to be displayed for the whole class. Throughout the experience instructors provide regular personalized feedback focused on documenting growth.
