Start with this question: What do I want to learn?
Senior Projects at Pingree offers students the opportunity to investigate an area of interest that may have been sparked at Pingree, or to generate a project that provides a new exploratory, educational experience, be it creative, service-oriented, career-focused, or any chance to stretch, learn, and grow. All seniors will propose, participate in, and present a Senior Project. The Senior Project is a graduation requirement and an exciting, experiential bridge upon completion of academic classes. For access funding, please speak with Mrs. Dyer.
Tips for Families
* Proposal forms and related info may be accessed via the "Senior Projects" button on the student Veracross portal.
* Keep in mind that students may have afternoon commitments (ex. EIL tournaments) during the Senior Projects timeframe. Be mindful of travel and/or projects that may require commuting.
Senior Project Video Gallery - Class of 2021

We hope you enjoy this digital video gallery in which the Class of 2021 showcases, in their own words, a wide array of senior projects.
By clicking on each senior's project title, which is highlighted in orange, you will be able to view a brief final presentation video that demonstrates each student's learning, growth, challenges, and solutions. From campaign finance to visual arts, from political journalism to biotechnology, and from engineering to outdoor education, this year's senior class explored a multitude of social justice initiatives, creative pursuits, and internships that allowed them to bridge the gap between the completion of academic classes and their next chapter after graduation.
New for this year was the option to design an independent capstone project or to pursue one of seven alumni-led projects. Many thanks to the following Pingree alumni for sharing their time and expertise during an extraordinary year: Connor Cash '11, Jason Galui '95, Jenni Mannion '11, Sarah Mathey '11, Dr. Thomas Mulroy '01, Stephanie Patton '00, and Campbell Rawlins '09.
A tremendous thank you to the Senior Project Committee for supporting and advising our seniors from start to finish: Jon Gistis, Ashley Goliti-Chase, Ann Lyons, Di Mathey, Skylar McAlpin, Eric McCollom, Dave Medvitz, Mike Montenegro, Molly Murphy, Liz Taft, and Mike Wilmot. An extra special note of gratitude to Novelette Brown and Leah Hancock for the technical knowledge and guidance that helped bring this video gallery to life.
Congratulations, Class of 2021!
