   Senior Symposium     All Seniors at Mount Alvernia High School are required to complete a Senior Symposium project.

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 Ms. Rebecca Brown, senior English teacher. The students' papers are bound and become part of the permanent collection in the school library.
