Story Details

Senior Projects Week 2019

Join us for this public exhibition as our 12th graders present their senior projects. 

Senior Projects Week

March 11-15, 2019

You are warmly invited to attend these public presentations of the seniors’ culminating course of study.

Based on academic, cultural, civic and experimental topics of interest chosen by each student, these presentations demonstrate the student's independent research, theory, observation, analysis, and artistic exploration.

The projects arise as an area of specialization for each student that has grown out of their studies in the High School.

Organized this year by the 12th grade and High School faculty, Chicago Waldorf Seniors present a two-fold project: a Senior Projects Exhibition in the vestibule rooms to the Auditorium, as well as individual presentations to the community. Faculty, staff, students will attend the topic lectures throughout the week.

Parents, family friends,  are also welcome to attend!

Note: Various presentations are appropriate for differing ages of students.
