Dream Big! Impact the Community. Leave a Legacy.



The Capstone Scholars Program is dedicated to educational enrichment, both in and out of the classroom. We encourage all Scholars to live out the Capstone moto to "Dream Big! Impact the Community. Leave a Legacy."

Our motto drives what we do through the Four Pillars of the Capstone Scholars Program: Academics, Leadership, Social, and Service.

The following listed are just a few of the opportunities presented to encourage students to achieve their potential. Also, please view our Social Media page for more pictures of our events!
