Capstone Projects

Anna_Denson_CapstoneAt Ensworth students are always encouraged to pursue their academic passions and  become life-long learners. Capstone projects  give students in grades 11 and 12 and opportunity to dive further into a specific area of interest. Students perform extensive exploration of a topic that is above and beyond courses offered at the high school. To participate, students investigate a specific project and then propose and gain approval for their Capstone during their junior year of high school. Throughout their senior year, they pursue that project with the support of a faculty sponsor.  Don’t miss a wonderful opportunity to hear these students present their capstone projects tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the high school theater.
