The Senior Capstone Project provides students the opportunity to apply and participate in a two-week, off-campus experience at the end of their senior year. Eligible seniors can choose to explore a career field, service work, or a project of interest by working with a mentor in a unique, real-world learning environment outside the boundaries of traditional school. This experience is designed to inspire seniors to explore their aspirations while enhancing the educational experience at Minnetonka High School.
