About Bullis Signature Programs Symposium

Bullis offers four Signature Programs

The Bullis Annual Signature Programs Symposium is a three-day event that showcases the spectacular accomplishments of our Senior Capstone students. The event starts with the Bullis Shark Tank competition where Entrepreneurship students create start-up businesses to compete for an investment in their company — and ends with Senior Capstone Project presentations in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), Visual & Performing Arts, and Humanities & Global Studies.

Bullis School offers Signature Programs in four subject areas; Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM), Visual & Performing Arts, Humanities & Global Studies, and Entrepreneurship. Signature Programs offer students access to these areas of focus from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students are given the flexibility to dig deeper into areas of interest and passion while meeting broad academic requirements. By senior year, students have the opportunity to develop expertise and an in-depth independent year-long Senior Capstone Project in one of the four areas.
