Senior Project Information Session at WVHS


Senior Project Information Session at WVHS

January 5, 2024

Warwick Valley High School welcomed alumni to the Media Center on January 5, 2024 to speak with current juniors and sophomores about the school’s senior project program. 

In the challenging student-driven/teacher-guided program, students choose an individual project they wish to work on for the duration of their senior year.

The alumni spoke with students about their senior projects and the impact they had on their senior year and college experience. Students also got insight into past projects, which varied from directing documentaries and writing memoirs to fashion shows in support of breast cancer awareness and wedding cake baking.

During the presentation, Nick Di Leo and Jeanine Fogler spoke with students about the different aspects of the project including the 4 P’s: “The Project,” “the Paper,” the Portfolio,” and “the Presentation.”

The Project
What each student chooses to study, and goals they set to accomplish with their mentor.

The Paper
A collegiate-level paper, seven to 10 pages in length, on their topic, which presents the students’ knowledge of their topic, including findings and outcomes.

The Portfolio
This piece chronicles each student’s process, including documentation, correspondences, photos, and anything else related to the project.

The Presentation
Students give an oral presentation on their topic and outcomes to a panel of judges drawn from the District and the community.

Students who would like to participate in the program should contact their guidance counselor for more information.
