Class of 2018 Senior Projects

For my Senior Project, I chose to explore careers in the medical field. Through interviewing Seton alums, I was able to obtain advice and information from professionals working in the medical field, as well as students who are currently in schooling to purse a medical career. You can find these interview questions and answers on my website!


This video explains the basics of the training, racing, nutrition, and camaraderie aspects of participating in a traditional high school cross country program.

Hello everyone! My name is Emma and for my senior project, I learned how to fix common problems with cars.

This video is on how to change your car oil. I know it is a long video, but changing your oil takes time. These steps are generic; however there will probably be some differences based on your car. Do not change your oil until about 30 minutes after you last drove your car because that oil would be hot.





For Mady Nutter’s senior project, she created an anonymous poetry collection centered around mental health.  With such a broad topic, Nutter hoped to create a platform relatable to a wide array of people going through various mental illnesses or different phases of recovery.  Several topics are covered throughout her collection consisting of poetic creations from current Seton High School students, showcasing works from a total of 17 incredibly talented writers.  Nutter hopes that all readers approach her book with an open mind and heart, and she thanks every person who helped make her project a greater success than she could have ever imagined.

Senior Project at Seton High School

The Senior Project is a culminating high school learning experience which will take place throughout the course of the school year. Students will have the opportunity to explore a topic of interest to them. Topics are generally related to one of three areas: career, service or personal interest/hobbies. This project consists of five components: the proposal, research paper, product/project (including a minimum of fifteen hours of field work), portfolio and presentation. Many documents will be distributed to those involved in the Senior Project throughout the first and second semester. Students, mentors and judges will have a copy of the rubrics for the different sections of the Senior Project in advance of the due dates.

Students may propose their topic at the end of their Junior year. If approved, they may begin their project during the summer prior to their Senior year.

The Senior Project is a graduation requirement – as such it is supported and embedded into the curriculum of English 4. Each student is guided by her English teacher to help her stay on track and complete her research components. In addition, students are supported by a mentor to complete her field work and project components.

Information Brochure is available here.
