Grade 8 Capstones

Student examines an Ozbot submerged in water

Before our 8th graders graduate and take on the world, they take on unique capstone experiences that encapsulate all they have learned at Green Acres: how to be of service to others, how to be academically successful, and, of course, how to be joyful throughout it all.


Admissions officers speak of our students as successfully meeting the time and scaffolding demands of complex assignments. Our graduates are able to complete their work strategically and efficiently, and they understand how to negotiate competing demands from a variety of teachers. Our graduates consistently demonstrate the work ethic and organizational prowess that helps them to achieve and sustain success in demanding academic programs.
