Two of the most critical pieces of the Honors College experience in the Upper School occur during the junior and senior years and are open to any student who is willing to stretch themselves, engage in high-level critical thinking and give back to the community in meaningful ways. The final presentation of these two projects is STRETCH.

Junior Honors Thesis

The Junior Honors Thesis students have been engaged in a year-long study on a self-selected topic. Each student completed a literature review, conducted their own original study using qualitative and/or quantitative methods, analyzed the data, and defended their study to a panel. Below, please click the link to view their defense videos and join us in celebrating their efforts as researchers this year.

Senior Capstone Project

The Senior Capstone students were engaged in three design challenges during the year. During the first design challenge, the students were tasked with the design of a potential outdoor extension to the Exploratorium area in the Lower School and designed in teams based on interviews, research, and feedback. The students then were asked to design for a local barber shop where they presented the owner with solutions based on the process they learned during the first challenge. Their third design challenge used the skills they learned during the first two challenges with each student partnering with a community organization and offering solutions based on the Design Thinking process. Below, please click the link to find their posters and a podcast created to share their design journey. Join us in celebrating their collaborations as innovators.
