This year's Summit will feature Global Studies Academy capstone speakers. As a part of their senior curriculum, Academy students take a class entitled “Academy Capstone”. The senior year Capstone course allows students to blend their personal interests and skills in order to study a topic of their own selection in depth both by research and by pursuing learning through nontraditional means. In the spring, these students perform advocacy on their topic with a target audience through Spring Action.
