Charleston Collegiate's Exhibition of Mastery is a unique public demonstration of knowledge occurring at the 4th grade, 8th grade, and Upper School levels.
Through individually-created projects that demand problem-solving, researching, writing skills and ultimately a public presentation, Charleston Collegiate students become experts on their topics and demonstrate their knowledge to the community through public exhibitions.
4TH GRADE EXHIBITION - Students focus on learning the history of the United States of America, with detailed research and presentation on individual states. They present interesting facts, landscape information, cultural information, and lots of other research on their selected state. They even make state travel brochures and plan a vacation to their state!
8TH GRADE EXHIBITION - Students plan a career path with meticulous research on schooling, budgets, internships, and ultimate goals. They complete job shadows, do thorough mathematial financial planning, select colleges, learn how to earn scholarships, and present all this information in a Q&A symposium and presentation setting.
HUMANITIES AND S.T.E.M. EXHIBITION - Students develop cross-curricular projects and present their work in a public symposium-style event followed by a Q&A session with members of the school community. Exhibition Night gives students the opportunity to present their project to lots of people, answer many questions, and display their hard work.
MAJORS EXHIBITION - Juniors and Seniors present their majors work throughout the year. This includes information on their internships, their paper, a full presentation, and Q&A with the audience. Students are allowed to select their own major. You can learn more about this program here.
