The culmination of college preparation, Scheck Hillel's Capstone Senior Seminar integrates literature, history, science and psychology via seminar-style learning: discussion, textual analysis, experiential activity and acquisition of skills in public speaking, debate, multimedia and branding. Through multiple academic lenses, seniors and faculty engage in a series of units addressing essential questions and topics that transcend traditional academic areas of study. Seniors prepare for college, pairing thesis research with personal, reflective experiences to help them find answers and inspire them to ask new questions.
