While the New Covenant curriculum includes many unique features spanning the grades, the most notable is the senior thesis project. The classical, Christian program of study is designed to develop a student’s facility in the written and spoken word, a process which begins in the earliest years of kindergarten and grammar school and continues through middle and high school.  The writing and speaking process at New Covenant is comprehensive and central to the program. Its most unique and abiding feature is the senior thesis, the capstone project of the New Covenant career, in which students research, write and present a significant paper on a debatable topic, usually involving what we refer to as a “great question.”  Recently, on March 30 and April 1, the high school schedule paused for two “Thesis Days” as our seniors took turns presenting before their advisors, faculty members, parents and peers.  Below is a list of this year’s thesis titles.
