2021 Senior Scholars

2021 Senior Scholars

Nine Berkeley Carroll Upper School students will present their Senior Scholars projects on Tuesday, May 11, and Thursday, May 13, as the culmination of their year-long, independent research. The sessions will be held on Zoom.

The Senior Scholars program prepares 12th graders to be responsible researchers, inquisitive citizens, and dynamic writers. This selective and demanding program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing serious scholarly work in the humanities. In addition to their oral presentations, students have also written formal papers.
