Diploma Program Information

What's the DP all about? Here are some documents to help you understand the expectations of program.

Service Spotlight

Have you planned your Service & Action and CAS Projects for the year?
Visit our new Viking Outreach page, where you'll find a list of opportunities and the reflection forms for 2017-18. All MYP (9th and 10th grade) students may record one summer project to count towards their 2017-18 requirement.

MYP 9th and 10th Grade Service & Action Requirements
  • MYP students are required to submit one Service Project per quarter--for a total of 3 for 9th graders and 4 for 10th graders by May 15, 2018.
  • We will no longer have an hourly requirement. Instead, we want students to plan their Community Service activities and think of them as "projects" rather than individual hours.
  • Activities will still need to be documented, but we'll be using an online process for this. See the VIKING OUTREACH link above and click on the MYP tab. Students will need to print the SIGNATURE PAGE and take it with them for their supervisor to sign. Then, they are to scan or take a photo of the signature page, saving a digital copy for the upload. Instructions will be given to students in their MYP classes.
  • All MYP students may submit one summer community service project to count towards the yearly requirement.

  • DP rising juniors will have new portfolios assigned to them when we return to school in August. Summer projects can be documented and uploaded then.

Seniors and Science at Latta Plantation
