Capstone and service learning experiences allow students the opportunity to apply the knowledge from their high school coursework into a meaningful and relevant career-related experience. Students are able to select their experience based on their chosen career cluster or pathway. All experiences are student-driven and designed to help increase students' college and career readiness.
Schools are required to offer a capstone or service learning experience to students. The experiences are youth internship, entrepreneurship experience, senior experience, and service learning. For more information, visit http://doe.sd.gov/octe/capstone.aspx.
