Cornerstones Program

Hands-On, Real Life Experiential Learning

This intensive project-based learning program offers Grades 9 and 10 high school students unique hands-on learning experiences under the guidance of faculty and professional mentors in leading industries. Students develop new skills, gain industry insights and build networks, giving them invaluable experience as they prepare for the final years of high school and their career paths.

Unlike an internship or an organizational affiliation, the program is fully integrated into the American high school curriculum and is part of the course credits for Grades 9 and 10 students. Each collaboration results in a culminating project showcased and reflected in quarterly progress reports.

The Cornerstones Program is designed to challenge students to become future-ready. By exploring passions and developing critical thinking skills in real-world contexts, students are better informed in course selections for Grades 11 and 12 and prepared well for the three high school graduating pathways, including the rigorous IBDP. The culminating project helps them stand out in their university applications, positioning them ahead of their peers and equipping them with essential skills that will last a lifetime.
