House “Dean” Team Update May 5-8, 2015

The first week of May our seniors presented their Senior Thesis topics in front of friends, family, students, our school board, and members of our community. This is the capstone of their classical education. After their speeches, seniors answered questions from our administration and teachers. A variety of interesting topics were presented including the impact of the internet on society, the need for changes to the Food and Drug Administration, data mining, U.S. Foreign Policy, space exploration, the U.S. Welfare System, and more. GREAT JOB, CLASS OF 2015! rsz_seniorthesisrsz_img_4943

Tears were shed as our Upper School students and faculty gathered around our seniors and prayed for them at our Senior Chapel. We pray God’s richest blessings on the Class of 2015!
