Senior Service Learning Project

All students are required to complete a Senior Service Learning Project.

This project usually begins at the beginning of junior year with a proposal process and ends in May of senior year with a completed project, written paper, community presentation night, and oral presentation.

This project is meant to showcase students’ interests, new learning, oral and written presentation skills, as well as be a vehicle for our commitment to serving and being a responsible part of our community.
