2024 Senior Thesis Presentations

The Senior Thesis is about taking what the students have learned at Bradford Academy and applying these lessons to a wider context. The thesis is an objective call to action for Christians to bring attention to an issue the seniors are passionate about. We ask the seniors to write a speech between 15 and 20 minutes in length, and to present it in front of the entire Upper School. The seniors are also tasked with a cross-examination of their theses where a panel of content experts question the senior and their thesis.

Our key verse is 1 Timothy 4:12: “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”

Here is a YouTube playlist of all eight presentations.
