2017-2018 Capstone Project Information and Application

Capstone Projects, a project-based course that is inspired by a student’s particular interest and passion, are open only to 11th & 12th grade students who already have extensive knowledge in a subject matter or who would like to explore another intellectual topic in-depth. Students will undertake a self-directed study that demonstrates high levels of critical thinking, innovation and advanced level work beyond the current PCS offered curricula. While projects will be independently driven and will rely on the student to direct the course of study, students will work under the guidance of a discipline-specific faculty mentor and the Capstone Project Research and Methods Class. Students may not be enrolled in more than one project at a time.
