CCLCS Portvisory Program


Part Portfolio, Part Advisory, “Portvisory” is a program that all CCLCS students participate in during their time at the school.


Portfolio: Students create a binder to encapsulate their three years at the school. Includes a yearly “About Me,” goals for each term, example school work, and reflections on projects, assessments, field trips, events, etc. Students display their portfolios with a 3 year reflection at end of 8th grade

Advisory: A monthly conversation or activity centered around a school wide advisory theme for the month.


The portfolio program seeks to instill the practice of self-reflection and foster personal growth in our students. Through guided reflection and goal setting students at CCLCS not only strive for academic growth, but work to find purpose, meaning and a personal connection to the rigorous academics they undertake. By the end of 8th grade, students have a better sense of themselves as a person, a student and a citizen of our world.
