Capstone Overview

Students participate in one (1) Capstone in preparation for graduation.  Generally, students will begin preparing for Capstone in their third year and participate directly in the experience during their final year at Next. In the four phases of Capstone (Exploration, Site, Internship, and Defense),  the student engages in self-exploration to determine a career field of interest, establishes a relationship with an outside organization to serve as an internship site, participates in 300 hours of on-site immersion, and finally, defends the experience to a panel of peers and adults, and makes a determination as to how the experience will impact their post-secondary learning option.
