In order to graduate from high school, every student shall satisfactorily complete a project as required by Pennsylvania Department of Education regulations. The graduation project will be a meaningful experience which provides a student with the opportunity for in-depth learning about a self-selected topic. The purpose of the project is to assure that the student is able to apply, analyze, synthesize and evaluate information and communicate significant knowledge and understanding through a presentation. The project will be under the guidance and direction of the high school faculty/administrators and will be assessed by an evaluation team.
Students who meet the necessary requirements may present prior to their senior year. Seniors who do not present their graduation project may face disciplinary consequences and loss of senior privileges, which includes attending Senior Prom. Graduation project papers and information are available online. Students should contact their Assistant Principal with any questions.
Upcoming Due Dates
Class of 2020:
Please use the following link to sign up for a graduation project presentation (https://forms.gle/w1o4Be3Z8E2CUWs68). Presentations will be held after school on February 4th, 5th, and 6th. You will be assigned a presentation time of either 2:40 or 2:55 pm. In general, students are usually able to present on the day they sign up for, although Thursday is always the most popular - if you are trying to make plans around your presentation, I recommend signing up for Wednesday, as all students who sign up for Wednesday will be able to present that day.
Please review the RUBRIC ahead of time, and make sure that you are prepared to present on the day you select.
Class of 2021:
In order to purchase tickets to the junior prom, you need to have an approved graduation project proposal on file.
**Failure to adhere to these dates could lead to the inability to participate in school activities up to and including Prom, Homecoming, and Graduation.
