Senior Experience

Each year in January, Christopher Dock seniors leave the classroom and campus for a week and venture out into the world for Senior Experience.     This week is designed to allow students the opportunity to serve and/or job shadow in areas they have future educational and vocational interest.               To learn more and see photos from some our student placements, click here.
