The senior thesis is the culmination of four years of work, and is required for high school graduation. The students present and defend their thesis before a panel of faculty at their school, after which they can enter it in the Chrysostom Oratory Competition.  The first and second place winners of the competition receive a prize of $500, and the first place winner also presents their thesis in person at the Repairing the Ruins Conference
