Senior Seminar & Project is a culminating set of hands-on learning experiences designed to encourage students to think critically, solve challenging problems, and develop professional and life skills that will help prepare them for post-high school, modern careers, and adult life.
Students are given a chance to personalize their education by selecting a passion project that interests them and aligns with their personal and professional goals. They will conduct research on the subject, connect with a professional leadership role model from the community, and create a portfolio visually displaying their learning during the project process through various artifacts and reflections. At the end of their experience, each student will present his or her learning during the project process to a board made up of faculty and community members. The capstone project for each student must be approved by the Senior Project Committee prior to the start of Senior Seminar.
" As an employer in the area, I wish more school districts did Senior Boards + Senior Project. I see so many people entering the workforce without the ability to manage a project or to present on a project. This is a GREAT program!! " -Boards Judge, 2021
