Helping students become skilled writers is an important part of Saint Joseph Academy’s mission of preparing our graduates for success in their college studies. All students in Grades 9 – 12 will be required to complete a yearly writing portfolio containing specific samples of their writing.
The compilation of the writing portfolio will be under the direction of the student’s English teacher. The completion of the annual writing portfolio is a graduation requirement for all students. In order to graduate, a student must have a completed portfolio for each year in Grades 9 – 12 in which they attended Saint Joseph Academy. Students whose portfolios are incomplete at the end of a semester will not receive an exam pass for semester exams until the portfolio requirement has been met.
