MIT Academy requires all students to present their academic Portfolio on an annual basis. Portfolios are designed to help prepare students to present themselves in “real-world” situations - interviews for jobs, college, or media opportunities. It also provides an opportunity for students to investigate academic and real world situations in a very different way – from their perspective.
In seven years, students preparing portfolios investigate themselves, their middle, high school and upcoming post-secondary education, volunteerism, testing, careers, how everything ties together, and their place in our country.
Portfolio at all levels enhances student presentation skills, technology skills, writing skills, listening skills, synthesis skills, and their ability to field questions.
