Senior Project Proposal
Senior Project is an opportunity for you to explore an interest or passion in a manner that allows for deeper meaning or understanding that might not otherwise be permitted in a traditional classroom setting. The spirit of Senior Project is to encourage a self-directed curriculum that empowers you and fosters inquiry and intellectual risk. This form will be reviewed by the Assistant Principal to ensure it meets requirements. Acceptance of the Senior Project proposal is a prerequisite for enrollment.
