Senior Projects

In accordance with the graduation requirements of the Shenango Area School District and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, all students will have an opportunity to pursue an area of interest and apply the skills that they have learned throughout their K-12 years of schooling. The senior project allows students to showcase their talents, abilities, and interests in a manner most fitting  to their own learning styles and areas of strength.
The Shenango High School Senior Project ensures that upon graduation, each student will gain a better understanding of their civic responsibility to their community and to their local government, will have an opportunity to exercise their strengths and abilities in a unique way, and will deliver this information through a formal presentation.

The SHS Senior Project Full Packet 2020-2021 contains all forms and guidelines for students to follow in completion of the Senior Project.

Keep in Mind when Job Shadowing:
Remember that you must complete a Career Pathway Profile for each job shadowing experience.
(You must open as a Google Doc, Go to File, and Make a Copy in order to edit.)
If you are going to miss school/classes, please be sure to complete a Job Shadow/College Visitation Form and submit to the front office.
