Students with a particular interest in Global Studies, Service & Leadership, or Sustainability have the opportunity to pursue a diploma distinction (akin to a college major) in their area of interest. Over the course of five semesters beginning sophomore spring, they select their courses and activities intentionally to support the distinction; complete outside reading around a theme; document their work in a digital portfolio; and complete a senior capstone project or thesis. Those who successfully complete the entire process graduate with distinction in their area of study. These diploma distinctions are meant to provide a venue for students to build upon and/or demonstrate an area of interest as they personalize their Lovett Upper School experience.
