The Senior Project acts as a demonstration of life and work skills. All seniors write a research paper, complete a project and portfolio, and speak at Senior Panels. By engaging in research, completing a project and portfolio, and speaking to a panel of judges, students demonstrate adequate skills in reading, writing, and speaking. All seniors must successfully complete all phases of The Senior Project in order to participate in graduation exercises. If a student fails to pass the project and does not participate in graduation exercises, he/she will be required to successfully complete the project before receiving a diploma. Lutheran High School's diploma becomes a benchmark for knowledge and ability.

This block of time is designated for enhancing the student’s academic preparedness in the areas of Study Skills, PSAT Prep, SAT Prep and general College Preparation. Additionally, students will be compiling Expected School-wide Learning Results (ESLR) Portfolios, in order to support each student as a whole learner. There is also a twenty-minute period of time blocked out for Sustained Silent Reading (SSR), which is designed to increase students’ reading and comprehension skills.
