Topic Selection

The senior project is student driven in that students choose their own topic and implement the project on their own. Many topics have been banned within school systems that have had Senior Project implemented for several years. Although students may choose a topic related to a career they wish to pursue, many are unable to do so because the topics have been banned. Most topics are generally acceptable as long as they are relevant and demonstrate a learning stretch.

Topics must also incorporate two of these criteria:

Academic: Project involves formal instructions from a professional in the field outside of the high school.

Community Service: Project provides viable service to the community.

Career: Project involves potential future development.

Personal Growth

: Project represents a unique personal challenge.
