The career-related capstone project is an initiative put forth by the State of Georgia to provide students with an education which leads them to college and career readiness. The capstone project will allow students to show their talents as they explore a career of personal interest. The project allows students to apply knowledge and skills learned in the academic setting to real-world problems. These projects should produce examples of each student's ability to think critically and problem solve as well as communicate effectively, and provide evidence of student learning and success throughout their educational experience. The capstone project is a graduation requirement for all high school seniors not participating in Work Based Learning.
