Senior Project

 

Senior Project Dates for the Class of 2020: January 6-28, 2020

Senior Project is a foundational and formational element of the student experience at St. Louis University High School. It began with the Class of 1971 and has been a part of the curriculum ever since.

In January, when the rest of the school begins the second semester in the classroom, seniors extend their classroom to include the St. Louis metropolitan area (and beyond). Over four weeks in January, every SLUH senior puts their education and talents to the test, serving alongside the marginalized in one of many approved agencies or schools. While in the midst of serving others, the senior learns and grows in his own self-understanding as a powerful, yet finite, part of God's creation. It is the school's belief that this experience of full-time volunteer work is so important to the development of its students that the satisfactory completion of Senior Project is a requirement for graduation.

Senior Project Coordinators: Mrs. Simonie Anzalone and Mr. Brian Gilmore

Senior Project Overview

"Today our prime educational objective must be to form men-and-women-for-others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and his Christ - for the God-man who lived and died for all the world; men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men and women completely convinced that love of God which does not issue in justice for others is a farce."

- FR. PEDRO ARRUPE, S.J.
