Creativity, Community Spirit Shine at Senior Project Showcase


The Class of 2024 showcased their curiosity, creativity and community spirit as they highlighted their senior projects — from learning how to code to managing race-day logistics for an autosports team — in the dining hall of the Olander Center for Student Life at the A.E. Finley Activity Center on Wednesday, May 22.

Part of a long Ravenscroft tradition, the Senior Project program gives Ravenscroft seniors the opportunity to explore a new interest, dig deeper into an area they’re already passionate about or gain valuable real-world experience during their last three weeks of school. This year’s projects included vibrant artwork installations for Upper School stairwells, trail and clean-up work on surrounding public lands, internships with a wide range of area companies and nonprofits, and service to several departments and programs right here on campus. 

“When I think about this year’s projects, I feel a huge sense of pride in the creative and compassionate ways students have shown up to change their worlds,” Senior Dean Ali Olney said. “It was a very open-ended opportunity for seniors to follow their passions, and they did everything from interning with psychiatrists to building houses to teaching fourth-graders right here at Ravenscroft. These projects exemplify students’ ability to envision change and make it happen!”
