Senior Projects

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.

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.


Financial assistance for these and other senior projects is made possible by the Daniel J. Toohey '99 Senior Projects and Creativity Fellowship Support Fund. The Toohey Fund was created in 2004 to honor the memory of alumnus Dan Toohey and to support creative discoveries outside the classroom. 
The Lovett School is an independent, coeducational day school where children from Kindergarten through Grade 12 find the courage to explore and the drive to discover.
