Eighth Grade Capstone

Eighth Grade Capstone Project

In the third trimester of eighth grade, students embark on projects that serve as a capstone to their St. John’s education. These student-driven service-learning projects blend many of the best elements of a St John’s education – servant leadership, collaboration, meaningful and relevant learning, and a unique experience – to create a fitting end to the students’ last year with us. As part of their capstone project, eighth graders work in small groups to:
  • Identify and research problems that exist in our community;
  • Plan and evaluate the practicality of proposed projects;
  • Complete the projects;
  • Reflect on their experiences; and
  • Present the results of their efforts to their peers.
