Portfolio for Life
An important component of Saint Mary's educational experience is the Portfolio for Life. Each student creates and maintains a digital Portfolio for Life that chronicles her experiences at Saint Mary’s and her development of the 10 key competencies. The portfolio gives girls a tool to reflect on their growth, assess their efforts, and celebrate their successes. Required for all students, students may also individualize their portfolio by incorporating additional sections specific to their unique interests and aspirations. Time is allotted each quarter for students to work alone and/or with their advisors on their portfolios. Each student graduates with a Portfolio for Life that gives her a clear record of her learning and growth as well as a resource to confidently talk about her herself and her accomplishments. She will carry her portfolio with her to college and build on it throughout her adult life. It will be a reminder of where she has been and a way to inspire where she is going.
