Shoreless Lake School’s Profile of Graduates

In our Self-Study for Accreditation by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA), April 7-11, 2014, we had to describe the Profile of Graduates from Shoreless Lake School.

The Profile of Graduates provides the answer to the following question: When our students have completed our entire educational program and have had the benefit of the services and activities provided by the institution and its community:

·       What do we expect them to know?
·       What do we expect them to be able to do with what they know?
·       What qualities or characteristics do we want them to demonstrate?

A Profile of Graduates:

·       Describes the students at the point of exit from the institution.
·       States the values, achievement, and readiness that each student will manifest upon graduation.
·       Should be considered both as a Bill of Rights and set of corresponding responsibilities for students, faculty, staff, administration, and the institution’s community.
·       Defines the outcomes each and every student will attain if the mission is operative and appropriately translated into programs and services.

What is the Shoreless Lake School’s Profile of Graduates?

A graduate from Shoreless Lake School would have developed critical reading, problem solving, and technology skills; knowledge of the world he or she lives in and of the philosophical and historical movements that have shaped it; an appreciation of the fine arts; and above all, a true Christian life.

A graduate from Shoreless Lake School should be fluent in both English and Spanish -- without exclusion of learning as many modern languages as possible-- and have a deep knowledge of Latin.

A graduate from SLS should have a keen sense of honor, integrity, devotion to his or her work, ambition without limits for goodness and wisdom, perceptiveness, perseverance, flexibility, culture, cordiality, prudence, good taste, and good humor.
