All seniors work for an entire year on a self-selected senior project. Projects may be within the realms of the sciences, math, humanities, arts, movement, music, and social renewals and/or interventions. The teachers expect that the students will challenge themselves: we use the term 'stretch.' Completion of the senior project is required for graduation.
Students begin the process at the end of their junior year by submitting a project proposal that is reviewed by a faculty committee. Under the guidance of an advisor and in some cases, a mentor, students work on their projects throughout the year. Students are expected to keep a weekly journal and to write a final report reflecting on the process. All senior projects culminate with a presentation where seniors share their work and personal journey one final time for the school community.
