Junior and Senior Research Projects
Juniors and seniors have the opportunity to define, design and conduct original scholarly research as part of our commitment to preparing our young women for university-level course work.
The Junior and Senior Research Projects are six-month long, cross-disciplinary research projects that require students to develop their own topic, utilize college-level research methodologies and produce a research paper in the junior year and a substantial final project in the senior year.
Our school’s Library Program offers instruction in all grades on navigating academic databases, using predictive search methods to locate research material, and the use of multiple electronic source documentation tools. These projects stretch our students beyond typical course studies and introduce them to the challenge of producing relevant research and then communicating and defending their results.
Here are just a few of the creative research projects created by seniors during the 2015-16 school year.
