Since 2008, Senior Project has been a graduation requirement. All seniors must develop, implement and present for evaluation an independent project, which includes a minimum of 30 hours of field experience. Field work may begin prior to senior year and be completed throughout the school year and/or during the two-week period in May between exams and project evaluation presentations. Senior Project is an individualized approach to learning that draws on a student’s strengths and current skill levels, but also provides them with the opportunity to stretch themselves as learners. It provides a transitional experience between the structured, directed experience of high school and the more unstructured, independent venue of college. These projects provide opportunities in real-world, performance-based situations to apply the skills, values, knowledge, and understanding they have garnered during high school. Senior Project also provides a sense of personal achievement, enhanced self-worth and the satisfaction of independent accomplishment by providing students with a structure that enables them to take a project from conception to completion and review.
