At Walsh Jesuit we value the personal development of the individual. One way to accomplish this is to broaden the horizons of seniors as they come to the end of their high school years. Walsh Jesuit provides seniors the opportunity to experience a more active and reflective understanding of their role in society.
The Senior Experience Program is a means of helping a senior exercise greater freedom and learn responsibility. Critical to this stage of growth and development is reflection on a self-designed experience within the adult world. This will include exploring a potential future occupation, career, or social service project; developing personal goals to frame their experience; and evaluating the fulfillment of their stated goals. In summary, The Senior Experience Program is an important educational undertaking that is designed to help Walsh Jesuit seniors continue with their adult development.
Beginning with the program’s explanation, each senior student designs a three-week experience in a potential career or vocational area (professional, artistic, educational, or service). The actual execution of the senior’s experience project will take place from Monday, May 11 through Friday, May 29, 2015. A faculty evaluation of each senior’s experience will take place at Walsh Jesuit from Monday, June 1 to Thursday, June 4, 2015. The successful completion of The Senior Experience Program (on a pass/fail basis) is a graduation requirement. (Click here for important information on Sponsor Expectations).
