Day School Senior Projects

Seniors at Evansville Day School spent the last seven school days in an experiential, on-site internship program at various hospitals, schools, and businesses for their Senior Projects. This opportunity allows them to job shadow a professional in the career of their choosing before they enter college. On Friday, May 26 from 9:30 - 11:00 am, each student will have a display in Day School’s Traylor Atrium to showcase what they learned. Students each set up a table with a poster-style presentation to engage individuals and small groups in conversations about their projects.
