Recent Senior Projects

For six weeks at the end of their senior year, Park students engage in Senior Projects. 

The Senior Project is the culmination of students’ intellectual, academic, and community activities at Park. It is an opportunity for seniors to plan and execute an individual program of study and to experience some of the demands and rigors of work beyond their usual high school environment. The Senior Project calls on students to create and develop goals that require intense use of their individual talents and resources.
