The Broadwater Academy Senior Independent Thesis (SIT) strives to showcase the abilities of all graduating students in the form of a 4.000+ word research paper and its presentation and public defense before a jury of faculty. Each senior produces a research question and hypothesis in the subject of the student’s choice. Students are encouraged to choose a field of study relative to what they might pursue in college.

The student is evaluated for the articulate analysis contained in the paper and the persuasive effectiveness of the presentation. 

With the successful completion of the Senior Independent Thesis, students conclude their Broadwater education prepared for the rigors of collegiate academics.
