Senior Slideshow!

A few days before Commencement, Waynflete seniors and their advisors gather for a special celebratory dinner. Each senior is honored with a “Senior Minute”—a short ode to that student and their time at Waynflete. To cap off the evening we play a slideshow featuring photos of the students as they grew up.

Senior Project Presentations

Every spring, seniors leave campus in early May and spend four weeks pursuing a subject of personal interest. This Senior Project month is a fondly remembered time that opens students’ eyes to new interests as they prepare to enter college.

We asked seniors to share their presentations with us so we could share them with you! Click here to view the project presentation schedule. Any project that has a link is available to view. Check back soon—more will be added in the weeks ahead.
