Independent Senior Project
In addition to electives, Seacrest seniors will have the opportunity to choose an ISP, an Independent Senior Project, to fulfill several of their course requirements in the senior year. Drawing upon their experience in the cross-disciplinary philosophy of Seacrest School, students will propose an independent research project to a panel of veteran faculty. Faculty will determine which proposals are truly viable projects and, upon approval, students will begin a semester-long period of research and study. This research and study may take the form of traditional library and on-line research or it may be more "hands-on" and include interning or working part-time in a particular field. Upon completion, graduating seniors will present their findings to a panel of experts - including both Seacrest faculty and community professionals in the students' chosen field. Students will be required to field questions in addition to providing results - much in the way that a doctoral student defends a dissertation.
