Members of the graduating Class of 2016 are being offered a new program that emphasizes innovative, rigorous, compelling, and interdisciplinary work beyond the normal curriculum. Students who complete this program will propose, design, research and implement a senior thesis culminating in a TED Talk-style presentation and defense. In addition, they will perform community service and justice projects that move beyond thinking about service in terms of required hours and start developing skills for identifying problems and being leaders in initiatives that better serve the need sin the community.

The Certificate of Excellence will indicate that students who receive it have not only done supererogatory work and demonstrated extraordinary achievement in academic, the arts, and service but that they have also taken accountability for pushing the scope of their own interests and education in ways that reflect the best of creativity, scholarship, character, and leadership.

Moving forward the program will be extended into a two year experience culminating in a special diploma.
