In 2010, Rutland implemented a capstone project as a graduation requirement. The goal of the Rutland Senior Endeavor is to better prepare students for life after high school. Each graduating student will complete a Senior Endeavor Project; details of this project’s requirements and credit are noted in the Rutland School Handbook.
The purpose of the project is to allow students to demonstrate the knowledge and maturity they have gained during the course of their education. It must be a “learning stretch,” meaning that it must go beyond what one already knows or has experienced.
