A Boston Trinity Academy education culminates with Senior Synthesis & Symposium. Encapsulating the interdisciplinary nature of a liberal arts education, Symposium requires students to analyze a topic of social relevance through two lenses: moral philosophy and Christian ethics. Seniors spend the year researching and writing a 15-20 page research paper on their topic which they then present and defend before a panel of invited judges. The course prepares students for the rigors of college-level research, which numerous alumni have said they felt more than equipped to handle.
Senior Symposium operates as a collegiate level research seminar, built on the Boston Trinity Academy mission to educate students from diverse backgrounds in an academically demanding Christ-centered community, and to inspire them to lead lives of faith, integrity and service. This is not a research course for the sake of research, but rather a key opportunity in the school to allow our greatest ideas and deepest joys to meet the world’s greatest needs.
