Explore Beyond Burke
The "capstone" to the Burke experience, the Senior Project gives students an opportunity to pursue interests and passions beyond the classroom – exploring and contributing to communities and workplaces around the region. Students work with faculty, staff, and their advisor to develop a meaningful internship or in-depth independent study.
Rather than take classes in their final weeks of high school, seniors engage full-time in these projects. Students may also partner with peers in a small project group. Upon completing the hands-on component of their project, seniors present their work to the community during the week before Graduation.
Senior Projects require a significant investment of time, effort and initiative, but alumni often agree that it is one of the most rewarding Burke experiences.
