Oxford High School’s Capstone Project is our independent study project for seniors. It is research based and consists of a student chosen topic, a research paper related to the topic, and 15 hours of field work completed by the student with a mentor. In the spring, students present their project to teachers as well as members of the community.  The Capstone Project challenges students to demonstrate their mastery of many of the skills they have developed throughout their education and, at the same time, allows them to choose their own pathway to meet this important graduation requirement.

Below are the forms and files that you will need to guide you through the process

Capstone Handbook - A comprehensive guide, including all forms and guidelines needed.Disregard the dates on the timeline in this handbook, since it is the timeline for the 2014-15 school year. It will be replaced with an updated handbook in the near future.
