Beginning with the class of 2000, each student graduating from Pottsgrove High School will complete a project in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Education regulations and the Pottsgrove School District requirements.
Projects will be evaluated in a student's junior year, allowing adequate time for remediation, if necessary.
All sophomores will be assigned a faculty advisor in their sophomore year. This advisor will meet with the student periodically throughout the student's high school career in order to monitor the student's self-directed progress.
