Seminar is another unique piece of IB in Henrico County.  The purpose is to instruct students on many program topics such as CAS, IB assessments, and the Personal Project.  In addition to the learning the nuts and bolts of the IB Program, educational lessons are built around the IB Learner Profile traits and each month a different trait is highlighted.  This is accomplished through films, discussions, essays, guest speakers and other activities.   The 9th grade students meet Mondays with the coordinator on a rotating schedule throughout the academic year.

The theme of this year for freshmen is “What skills do I need to achieve my goals?”  Through seminar lessons, students will evaluate their strengths and weaknesses and will work on developing skills critical for academic and personal success.
