In the Skills21 Capstone Program, students demonstrate mastery of a variety of college and career ready skills through an individual project. Capstone projects are often rooted in students’ passions and interests. Final projects completed from school and/or home take on a variety of forms to authentically address a research question.
“The knowledge and skills that students have to exhibit here are exactly the skills that are most valued in college, work and life. So this is absolutely an experience that prepares students for college and life beyond their K12 experience.”
Kathleen C. Greider, Superintendent, Farmington Public Schools.
