Traditionally, Burke seniors wrap up classes three weeks prior to Graduation, dedicating two weeks to a full-time, independent (or collaborative!) senior project, before returning to school to present their work to the full community. On June 1, students and faculty from all grades gathered around campus to watch small groups of seniors present and take questions about their projects.
