nex+Gen is abuzz with Senior Project! But what’s it all about and what do underclassmen need to know?

Ariana Lopez and Kobe.

The Senior Project is the Ultimate Elective! Seniors choose a subject they are passionate about and design their own inquiry-based project. Past project have included directing a 1-Act play, building a collapsible boat, writing and illustrating a vegan cookbook, and sewing Star Lord’s jacket, plus many more.


“It was a great opportunity to explore something you’re interested in and that requires you to actually create and complete something on your own.”  

-Ariana Lopez

One of the things that makes Senior Project so challenging is that seniors must find a mentor on their own and work with them throughout the course of their project. Another thing that makes it challenging is the self-directed nature of the project. Seniors are really on their own, with minimal scaffolding from facilitators. They have check-ins throughout the fall semester, with their final product due by mid-February.

The week before Spring Break, seniors presented their projects to underclassmen for feedback. Seniors must pass this benchmark in order to present on the evening of April 18, 2019 to community members.


“You can do almost anything if you’re pressed for time badly enough.”

Senior Project is also the final hurdle to Distinguished Graduate status (those seniors who successfully complete all the benchmarks will wear a crimson and silver cord at graduation). Other benchmarks include a 3.0 GPA, 2 years of a foreign language, a senior year elective at nex+Gen, and successful completion of 2 Dual Credit courses.
