As a graduation requirement, all seniors must plan and conduct a Senior Project that culminates in a Senior Exhibition. The Exhibitions are public presentations that are assessed by panels of teachers, students, and community members.
Most seniors enroll in a 9 or 18 week Senior Exhibition Seminar. A small number arrange with a teacher to enroll in a course or independent study designated as support for their Senior Exhibition.
Students may apply for grants to cover costs associated with their Senior Project. These grants, provided by The Mount Desert Island Educational Enhancement Fund, help compensate for differences in family income and allow for more ambitious Senior Projects.
