Senior Project

  • 2020 Application and Information and 2020-2021 Important Dates (Coming Soon)

    The Senior Project is an opportunity for seniors to create a more effective, enhanced senior year experience while maintaining an appropriate academic course load.  

    Students may opt to spend part of their day in their senior year in a career-focused position.  Students will be required to find their own position and have them approved by the Senior Project Coordinator.  Quarterly papers and signed, weekly timesheets will be turned in each marking period and a presentation will be completed at the conclusion of the program. Students can earn up to 15 credits.  Examples may include business, fashion, real estate, the medical profession, the arts, and various trades of interest to the student.

    Participation in the program is optional; Students are required to have parent permission to participate and are responsible for their own transportation and any costs accrued.
