Advanced Interdisciplinary Seminar (AIS): Capstone
AIS Capstone is designed to be the most rigorous and demanding academic experience at Miss Porter’s School, challenging students in their last year to develop, research, practice, and present their learning in response to a timeless question or a pressing problem in a field of their own choosing. Students will have support from faculty throughout the process and will be required to meet certain milestones to continue into the second semester of the course. In our school’s Mission, we ask students to “shape a changing world;” AIS Capstone encapsulates that principle, as students will shape their own experience while beginning to shape a changing world through authentic, relevant, and impactful work. The 12th grade InterMission experience for AIS Capstone students connects to and supports each student’s self-directed project.
