With input from over 100 community members, a college and career-ready graduate is prepared to successfully demonstrate six critical skills:

  • Creative Problem-solving
  • Technical Literacy
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Self-Awareness, Self-Reliance, Self-Discipline
  • Integrity
  • Community Engagement


Understanding the importance of these core life skills is paramount to helping students learn them and practice them. To help staff, parents and students align the college and career readiness objectives and other initiatives, including Common Core, Next Generation Science and Career Technical Education standards, Elk Grove Unified created a Graduate Profile video and poster that can be found here: https://blogs.egusd.net/explore/graduate-profile/
