CAPSTONE AS A REQUIREMENT FOR GRADUATION – 1 credit
The Capstone Experience is a culminating activity that provides a means for students to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they acquired during their secondary school years of education. It engages students in a project/experience that focuses on an interest, career path, or academic pursuit that synthesizes classroom study and real world perspective. High school students are asked to demonstrate their ability to apply key knowledge and skills by planning, completing, and presenting a culminating project linked to one or more areas of personal interest and the individual’s Student Success Plan.
The Capstone Experience may include an in-depth project, reflective portfolio, community service and/or internship. As part of the experience, the student will demonstrate research, communication, and technology skills.
Work on the Capstone Experience may begin as early as 9th grade. Successful completion of the Capstone Experience will earn the student one credit toward high school graduation.
Please refer to The East Granby High School Capstone Program Handbook for more detailed information. Contact Josiah Friedberg, Capstone Coordinator, with any questions.
