There are many requirements for graduation that can all be found HERE. One of those requirements every year is the completion of a senior capstone experience of some kind. Here is a description of the experience.

Senior Capstone Experience

Completed by Spring Break- March 20, 2020

Capstone Experience options “get out and do a thing”

  • Options below must be approved and done in a chosen subject of inquiry:

  1. Traditional “Senior” Project- plan approved by student’s senior adviser

  2. 30 hrs Internship

  3. 30 hrs Extra-Community Service at a dedicated location or in a dedicated field (must be completed during senior year)- not as a service to the school or as part of this course. This is in addition to the 45 hours required for graduation.
