Portrait of a Graduate
Ensuring Our Graduates Have the Career, Life and Academic Skills to Succeed in the 21st Century
Recognizing each student has unique goals, interests, and skill sets, at D.C. Everest we rely on a diverse set of research-based metrics to assess a student’s life, career and academic preparedness. We consider the whole person — the breadth and depth of their coursework, participation in extracurricular activities, ACT scores, grades, third-party certifications, community service, and ability to demonstrate soft skills within and beyond the classroom — to determine student readiness.
These same metrics serve as guideposts that help students make informed choices about the courses, activities, community service, and work-based learning experiences they engage in based on their personal and professional goals.
College and Career Readiness
We are committed to helping students connect what they are learning now with future college and career opportunities. Our K-12 Academic and Career Planning program provides students with tools that assist them in making informed choices about their interests, career fields, and postsecondary education/training options while helping them develop — and modify — personalized goals/plans throughout their academic career at D.C. Everest.
