Our name is a combination of two things:
1. “HUB” represents we are in the Hub of Wallingford
2. “CAP” represents the CAPSTONE projects the Wallingford High schools complete by their Senior year.
Thus, the Name “HUBCAP”.
Connecticut’s “Capstone Project” a state initiative that will increase graduation requirements beginning with the class of 2018. In addition to increasing the number of credits for graduation from 20-25, every graduating student must complete a project that combines study and real-world experience.
The “Capstone Experience” is a culminating activity that provides a way for students to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they acquired during their secondary school years of education. It engages students in a project /experience that focuses on an interest, career path and academic pursuit that synthesizes classroom study and the real-world perspective.
It has been designed to prepare high school students for a lifelong learning and effective and productive citizenship. Successful completion of a “Capstone Experience” will earn the student additional credit toward High School Graduation.
