The essay must be a least 1page
The school has created a document entitled the "Profile of the Graduate at Graduation." The Profile lists three characteristics we wish to instill in our students. The first characteristic, Intellectually Competent, will be the focus of this first essay assignment. You are to review the introduction to the Profile and the description of this first characteristic (listed below) and write a reflective essay discussing whether or not you have attained each point listed. You must provide examples to support your assertion.
Profile of the Archbishop Stepinac Graduate at Graduation
Stepinac graduate is a young man of integrity and compassion, who has a healthy respect for authority. He is willing to stand up for what is right and courageous enough to advocate for those who are unable to represent themselves. He has a solid educational background that allows him to analyze data, problem solve, listen to multiple view points and think critically about global and domestic events in order to devise truths and form his own opinion.
Upon graduation the Archbishop Stepinac High School student will exhibit a mastery of the fundamentals of the academic requirements for higher education. While these requirements are organized into departmental subject matter areas, the student will have developed many interdisciplinary skills and understandings which go beyond academic requirements for college entrance. The student is beginning to see the need for intellectual integrity – particularly the need to integrate the spiritual values of the school with all aspects of life.
By graduation the student already:
-is a critical thinker and communicator who is competent using the knowledge acquired at Stepinac to act responsibly and to face the challenge of postsecondary life choices.
-has a solid foundation in all academic disciplines.
-is able to critically evaluate viewpoints, solve problems, and think creatively and independently.
-is proficient with Information and Technology
-is prepared to meet the rigorous academic programs of a postsecondary education
-is able to articulate an opinion or point of view orally and in writing
-has developed a strong work ethic in and out of the classroom
