Each school year the senior class elects members of the class to represent them and develop senior events. Two faculty Senior Class Advisors guide the council. The counsel is elected in September and meetings are held once a month. If you have any questions please contact the Senior Advisors Matt Murphy or Rebecca Carson.
Take a look at the Senior Events Calendar for dates and times of upcoming events. Please note that the calendar is subject to change.

Throughout the year the Senior Council hosts a variety of events that gives seniors the opportunity to spending time together as a class. These events change each year. In the past we have held car washes, BBQs, bonfires, holiday dinners, donut Wednesdays, and the senior auction. Seniors are encouraged to participate in as many events as possible.
Each spring the senior class departs from the Northern Atlantic to warmer seas in sunny Orlando, Florida, for four days of exhilarating fun. Seniors are given the opportunity to participate in this senior-only event. We enjoy three nights at a Disney hotel, passes to all the Disney parks, and an exclusive pass to Grad Bash at Universal Studios, which lasts all night. Universal opens their doors to graduating classes from all over the country to enjoy amazing DJs, award-winning entertainers, and the thrill of riding rides until 3 a.m. Seniors sign up for the trip in September.
For many, prom is the most memorable night of senior year. Seniors are invited to the Cruiseport in historic Gloucester, Mass., for a formal dinner and dancing with their class. Each senior is allowed two tickets, one for themselves and one for a guest. Tickets go on sale in April. This event is hosted by the senior council. Read more about the 2017 senior prom.
Senior breakfast is the last opportunity for the senior class to gather together and share a meal. This occurs directly following graduation rehearsal on the day before graduation. Breakfast is served at the Cruiseport in Gloucester, Mass., and is a senior-only event. Seniors enjoy the opportunity to revisit favorite memories and share stories.
Seniors and their parents/ guardians are welcome to join us at Danversport Yacht Club for a farewell dinner. The 2017 event is set for Friday, June 2. Please RSVP.
