Developed to foster intellectual curiosity, and to showcase the knowledge and skills your student has acquired, the student-designed Senior Project is the culmination of the BASIS Charter Schools Curriculum. The Senior Project gives your student the opportunity to graduate with high honors, and to differentiate themselves from others in their field of study when applying to universities.
Your student will be conducting high-level, off-campus research on an approved topic with subject matter that mirrors their own academic and professional goals. Unlike other internship or study programs, your student is not limited to location, or type of research site. They can team up with corporations, agencies, research facilities, and entrepreneurs, either nationally or internationally. In addition to an onsite mentor, your student will also be collaborating with a BASIS faculty member. Your student’s compiled research and findings will be published, and they will return to campus to present an analysis to peers, parents, and faculty.
The experience and edge that the BASIS Diploma Senior Project offers your student will follow them throughout their academic and professional lives.

Students are guided by a faculty member at their BASIS Charter School, plus a mentor (like you) at their off-campus site. Interested in becoming a Senior Project Mentor? Learn more below.
