Our CAPSTONE education model, encompassing Grades 6 – 12, is reflective of our vision, mission and values and allows us to meet two of our strategic priorities by providing a personalized program that is rigorous, relevant and research based and by providing programming allowing our students to be prepared for their future education. Students are involved in authentic, personally meaningful activities with continuous formative assessment and relevant and timely feedback. Our research has explored ideas and concepts such as Harvard’s Project Zero philosophies, brain research, girls’ learning, growth mindset and multiple intelligences.
The focus on the development of “STEAM” skills is much more than a focus on science, technology, engineering and math, but is a program that values innovation and focuses on an inquiry-driven, student centered approach to learning (problem-based). To ensure that innovation and creativity are valued, Arts are integrated into each of the “STEM” subjects.
