As part of Eastern Carver County Schools’ commitment to engage high school students in rigorous 21st century skills, the district created Capstone courses that require students to demonstrate real-world applications of advanced skills and knowledge. The Capstone Course is a project-based class that immerses students in an authentic, real-world experience.
The Capstone experience provides the opportunity for every student to practice skills that will serve them well in college and at work: critical thinking, creative problem solving, communication skills and collaboration. Capstone projects will originate from a student’s interest in one of four Areas of Interest in the high school curriculum.
– Arts and Communication
– Global Studies
– Health and Social Sciences
– STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
