Creating A Capstone Project

As a part of the VPA, all seniors must complete a Senior Capstone Project as a graduation requirement. These projects synthesize the skills, knowledge, and creativity our students develop in the VPA. Below, you can find resources to help you create your Senior Capstone Project. Students and parents should join the Google Classsroom code ur017r. This Capstone is an integral part of our Pathway experience and allows students to begin a professional portfolio as they prepare to head off to college or pursue a post-secondary-school career.
