Project-based Learning

The Open Doors program at Northwest Career & Technical Academy is like no other program! Building off of the highly successful interactive learning model we utilize every day in our academy courses, our Open Doors students work toward obtaining their high school diploma through a series of real world, project-based modules. 

During each module, we develop learning communities so students can collaborate and dive deeply into the topic - all while making significant academic gains as well as enhancing their career and college readiness.

Performance Assessments

By measuring achievement through performance-based assessments, students have the opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities in a real world, hands-on context. This departure from traditional assessment models (tests and quizzes) may help some students on their educational journey.
