The Senior Project is the last formal learning experience of a student at Vistamar School, completed by every senior. It can showcase a student's potential, demonstrate prior learning, explore new areas of interest, and help develop a stronger sense of self. The Senior Project is an opportunity for Vistamar students to continue their learning in a career or service setting, pushing students to extend their learning into the community.
Senior Project Goals
Each Senior Project must involve students getting real-world experience in an industry or non-profit that fulfills the following project goals:
- Inquiry with real-world answers: The student formulates a driving project question that gets them out of their comfort zone and yields a thorough response from experience, research, and mentorship from an expert in the field.
- Self-reflection: Student synthesizes what they learned from their experience considering their personal growth and previous learning experiences in high school.
- Project Management: Students will demonstrate initiative, self-management, organization, and flexibility
- Communication: Students will demonstrate effective communication skills by connecting with out side organizations or experts and delivering an effective presentation to the Vistamar audience.
