SAVA Senior Projects
Senior Capstone: Every high school senior attending a Sacramento Academic & Vocational Academy site must complete senior capstone during the last semester of their senior year. This class will cover three important sections: Service Learning Project, RoadTrip Nation, and Senior Portfolio. Senior capstone is intended to improve presentation and leadership skills for work, college and beyond. Check out our Senior Capstone website.
Service Learning Project: SAVA students will have the opportunity to participate in a service learning opportunity that will enhance their leadership and team working skills. All projects improve and provide service to the local community. Students will learn of opportunities from their teachers. Students will be able to sign up for their project choice. Past opportunities include: Partnership with SPCA, Elk Grove “Box City” project, Women in Construction, Mock the Vote project & many more.
