Welcome Senior Class 2016-17  -- See Documents for a Step-by-Step Guide on How to Apply
The school encourages 12th graders with particular passions to pursue Senior Independent Projects during the last months of their senior year.  
Senior Independent Projects allow inspired and dedicated students to pursue their interests by releasing them from agreed upon coursework and attendance requirements in a "sponsoring class." 
Requirements for the project include
  1. completing a preliminary proposal for committee review
  2. upon acceptance into program completing a thorough proposal including a schedule and budget
  3. identification of a mentor for the project -- mentors are generally outside experts who agree to guide the senior throughout the project
  4. a final public presentation of the learning that occurred
  5. submission of a paper discussing the process and research
Upon completion of the Senior Independent Project, students are awarded credit for their work.
