Personal Project: Major Milestones

Guidance for completing the MYP Personal Project

Set your own timeline

As an independent learning inquiry, the student has the freedom to set her own timeline providing all milestones are achieved on or before the published dates.

Students who find the 9-month time frame too long can submit the project before August 8, 2019. The submission dates for major milestone pieces must be negotiated with the mentor.

The student should spend a minimum of 25 hours working on the project. 

Assessment will take place on August 8, 2019.
