Since 2009, 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 following the end of classes for seniors. Project evaluation presentations occur in January, April, or May. 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. The culmination of Senior Project is the Senior Project Showcase Event in May where seniors display their projects.
