Mount Alvernia High School, Newton, MA
All seniors at Mount Alvernia High School are required to complete a Senior Symposium project. This project is the culmination of their years of preparation in English and in history. It consists of a research paper for history, an analytical paper for English, reflective essays, and a formal oral presentation, all under the direction of Dr. Melissa Heim, senior history teacher, and Mrs. Denise Bowser, senior English teacher. The students' papers are bound and become part of the permanent collection in the school library. This Web site presents an overview of each student's Symposium papers. In addition, each senior art student completes a Senior Art Thesis, under the direction of Mrs. Joan Nelson, senior art teacher.
