Senior Project

Senior Project is a nationally recognized program in which high school seniors earn high school credit while learning about a subject or working on a project of particular interest, while working with an adult mentor. Students who sign up for the program will be scheduled for the same English and government/economics teachers who will help them create, implement and report on their project.

This course will be immersed in the social studies/English curriculum in the spring of senior year. For more information, open the Senior Project Handbook.
