Senior Project & Play

Senior Project

Students may take on an in-depth research project of their choosing within the areas of humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, or the arts. Projects include at least thirty hours of experiential learning, a comprehensive research paper, and a community presentation. Student work closely with the Senior Project Coordinator and Faculty Sponsor throughout the year.

Senior Play

Students may elect to produce the Senior Play, presented to the community just before graduation. The group works closely with the advisor/director on play selection and the production process. Each student assumes at least two aspects of play production: performance, costumes, lighting, or set design.
