All seniors are required to complete a Senior Capstone project. We see Capstone as a culmination of all previous learning; it serves as an opportunity for students to demonstrate their mastery of our standards as they head to college, careers, and carry their overall Academy experience into their personal and professional lives. On Senior Capstone Day, in early December and early May, seniors present their Capstone projects to their peers, faculty members, trustees, and members of the community. The topics are often difficult, the preparation is time-consuming and detailed, the students are nervous, and the presentations are magnificent. Capstone projects have had lasting impacts on the school, town, region, country and world.
