Design to Action Scholar Program

This independent study option is available to current eighth graders who will be attending Convent & Stuart Hall in the fall, as well as for all returning high school students. Students in this program will:

  • Work independently or in self-created teams to identify an important problem and work to develop a tangible solution in several iterations over the course of a full year. 
  • Attend monthly cohort meetings in addition to individual and group meetings with their respective advisors and program directors.

  • Incorporate aspects of design thinking, entrepreneurialism and product development as they work through an iterative cycle to develop and implement their solution.

  • Meet regular deadlines by presenting their work both online and in person. 

Upon completion, students may be invited to present their work in an effort to gain start-up funding through the Launch Grant Program.
