The Senior Project is an eight month opportunity for students to explore the question: How can my interests and strengths be manifest in the world in a way that is fulfilling for me and benefits the world? To answer this question, each senior undertakes an independent research project, consults with a mentor who is a professional in their field of interest, and do hands-on activities that allow them to explore and create their answer to this life-long question. Seniors strengthen skills that last a lifetime—including the ability to think for themselves and work on their own. Examples this year include everything from qualifying for a pilot’s license to game design to an investigation of abortion and women’s rights.

Join the Class of 2020 as they share what they’ve learned and celebrate this tremendous 12th grade milestone.
