Senior Speaker Series  The senior speaker series is another capstone experience in the Leadership Program and further enhances Suffield’s strong sense of community. As part of the series all seniors deliver a talk to the community during the school’s weekly chapel meeting. Talks highlight how students initially learned of Suffield, how their time here has unfolded, goals for the future, and valuable lessons learned. They serve as powerful motivation and remind us of the profound impact of the Suffield experience.
Senior Seminars  Suffield seniors annually participate in a three-part seminar that serves as a concluding aspect of the Leadership Program. The meetings highlight important topics we want our graduates knowledgeable about as they head on to the next stage in their lives. Seminars focus on topics including financial literacy and awareness (credit scores, types of debt, credit cards); digital footprints including the trail left when surfing the internet, social media usage, and password protection; and building and sustaining personal networks.
