The senior capstone experience at The Neighborhood Academy is a year-long independent research project called Senior Seminar. The goal of Senior Seminar is to replicate the demands of a first-year, college-level seminar with a 15+ page thesis, followed by an hour-long oral defense. For our students it is the culmination of years of work, and it is a shining example of the academic excellence of which they are capable.
