The purpose of The Lovett School's senior project is to allow a senior to create and pursue an educational objective or opportunity that cannot be pursued during the normal school day or within the normal academic curriculum.
Ideally, a senior project is a culmination of a student's academic career, which allows that student to synthesize important lessons learned or to further develop a special talent or interest they have been pursuing throughout high school. Through senior projects, students may investigate possible careers, test their skills in the marketplace, and explore the wider world beyond Lovett.
In keeping with the school's philosophy, senior projects encourage service to others, moral and environmental awareness, and a sensitivity to issues of global significance. Furthermore, senior projects reinforce Lovett's values and strategic plan by promoting interdisciplinary and experiential learning, creativity, intellectual curiosity, and love of learning.
