2024 Senior Capstone Night of Celebration

The Capstone Night of Celebration is an event our community looks forward to each year! Our community is invited to our campus to walk through all of our Seniors’ Capstone displays and learn more about each of their Capstone topics. This is a special way we celebrate their year long efforts for the Capstone project.

What exactly does the Senior Capstone Project entail? Early in the year, students identify a social issue that they care about. Students then complete the following throughout the school year: research paper, field work and community action, defense of the topic to a group of panelists, and their final presentation at the Capstone Night of Celebration. The goal is for students to articulate a Christian perspective in response to the topic addressed and that the student’s faith in Jesus Christ and a desire to serve him in our society will grow.

We were able to celebrate their work and their findings at an open house. Thank you seniors for your meaningful work in these important areas of study.
