Senior Capstone Projects
Welcome back to the High School Corner!

Today we would like to explain the SCM High School senior projects. The pinnacle of our student-centered Montessori education is the senior capstone. The senior capstone is an opportunity for the seniors to immerse themselves in a self-designed project and to exercise adult-level independence as they transition out of St. Catherine’s High School and into the next chapter of their lives. The goals of the senior capstone are for students to: 

  • Pursue self-guided research in an area of high individual interest 
  • Demonstrate skills developed over the course of education at SCM, including those of managing a significant project 
  • Develop connections and interact with professionals in the greater community
  • Think creatively about academic, social, and/or professional issues 
  • Refine verbal and written communication skills by sharing research with the larger St. Catherine’s community 

All of the seniors have been hard at work reaching out to mentors and creating their projects. The topics they have chosen are world religions, naval doctrine, hosting an art gallery, and food blogging. Tune in to our livestream on April 28 to see the finished products!

Thank you for reading!
Jacob, Isabella, Julia, and Sarah
