Capstone Curriculum Overview

Welcome to CCHS's Capstone Curriculum website. On this site, you will find any and all resources that you need in order to complete your Capstone project.

To get to the curriculum on this site, go to the Capstone Advisory Days Curriculum tab and then you can go through each grade level. In each grade level (except for 12th grade) the page includes a Google Slides Presentation from the beginning of each year to the end. Going through each slideshow in order will result in the completion of a student's Capstone project.

There is also a "Resources" tab where students will find helpful resources such as presentation exemplars, rubrics, a portfolio checklist, project ideas, etc.

Good luck on your Capstone journey!

Capstone Project Mission Statement

The Cañon City High School Capstone Project will provide a cumulative evaluation instrument to validate a graduating student’s ability to apply math and English Language Arts in a workplace environment, design and complete a project, educate others about the project through a formal presentation, and then reflect and assess performance and learning.

Overview: Students will showcase math, language arts, and essential skills. Possible outcomes include:

  • A physical product or service resulting from chosen fieldwork (to be aligned with an internship where possible)

  • A qualitative research product and reflective oral presentation

  • An artistic endeavor that showcases a cumulative experience

  • An experience, through reflection, that presents growth (travel, athletic challenge, etc.)

All Capstones include:

  • An oral presentation, accompanied by a portfolio, to a panel composed of district/school staff and community members (advisor, mentor, internship employer, etc.)

  • Presentation to the community via the Senior Capstone Expo

This experience cannot rely solely upon what you already know but must demonstrate an aspect of new learning and growth.
