SEA Block W

SEA students can work toward a variety of achievements, including earning an SEA  Block W, Student of the Year, and SEA Graduate Certification.  We had our 15th graduating class in June 2013;  in those 15 years we have had 256  Graduates and 167 Graduates with Honors.  For more details about any of these, and to see names of students who have made these achievements, choose a link at the left.

SEA Graduates: SEA students who complete their Four Year Plan, and complete other requirements such as job shadowing and community service, can become SEA Graduates.  If they also have a GPA of 3.5 or better and four letters of recommendation from teachers, they can become SEA Graduates with Honors.  SEA Graduates receive a special seal on their diploma, a special notation on their transcript, and special recognition at graduation.  The "Graduation Requirements" link at the left lists all of the requirements, and has links to documents that students use to verify completion of different requirements.

Student of the Year: Each year two SEA students from each grade level are chosen as Students of the Year.  The selection is made by the SEA staff, and is based on GPA, participation in SEA activities, and teacher evaluations.

Senior Service Project: As part of their graduate requirements, SEA seniors work in teams to do service projects that demonstrate many of the skills they have learned in their four years in the SEA.  The projects provide a tangible, long-term benefit to a target organization in the community of the students' choice.  The projects are evaluated by the SEA staff based on the level of engineering difficulty, the amount of time involved, a formal presentation given by the team, and their documentation of the project.

SEA Block W: SEA students can earn an SEA Block W by completing 2 years with a GPA of 3.25 or better and at least 4 SEA activities.
