   Senior Symposium     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 Lewis Heim, senior history teacher, and Miss Eileen McLaughlin, senior English teacher. The students' papers are bound and become part of the permanent collection in the school library.
   Web Site     This Web site presents an overview of the Symposium papers and Art Theses. It was created by the senior Advanced Technology classes, under the direction of Mrs. Tatyana Finegold, technology coordinator and Ms.Maura Brady, technology instructor.
