Senior Colloquium Presentations 2020

Starting last year, the Senior Colloquium quickly became a favorite event for seniors and their families to celebrate their extended essay work. These presentations resemble a senior thesis in college, including an extended timeline that starts junior year. The topics are student driven and chosen. This work is what students want to learn about.
This year, students recorded their presentations. We encourage you to check out these presentations from the Class of 2020!
