Scarsdale High School
Senior Options Program OVERVIEW
All seniors participate in the Senior Options program which is the culmination of students' careers at Scarsdale High School. The program allows students to extend the skills and knowledge that they have developed in school by applying them in areas of personal interest. To ensure that this experience will be rigorous and worthwhile, seniors work closely with faculty members in developing their options.
Senior Options begins in early May and continues to the end of the academic year; modifications are made for those taking AP examinations. The program is a graduation requirement and is graded on a Pass-Fail basis. Students work individually and cannot be paid for their work. Seniors have considerable flexibility in the options they choose. Some possible options include community service, internships, and independent projects. In planning their options, students receive guidance from their mentors and other faculty members. In addition, the Senior Options Steering Committee monitors and must approve all Senior Options proposals.
