By facilitating and providing technical assistance around a range of research-based approaches, Capstone Institute has managed to foster family, school, and community partnerships that have demonstrated significant improvement in students schooling outcomes.

Key among these elements are:

Parent Empowerment Workshops/Seminars:
These activities are designed to enable parents or other student caregivers to be proactive advocates for their children’s academic achievements. Parents gain skills or knowledge in such areas as homework support; student motivation; culturally relevant child and adolescent development; making academic connections between home and school; building on their own and family assets to enhance schooling outcomes for their children; and communicating effectively with school personnel. They will also be oriented to the Talent Quest model and Talent Development principles.

The Capstone Student Support Center:
A designated physical space within the school building that serves as a headquarters for student focused activities including (but not limited to) academic reinforcement, support for student transitions through school, college and career orientation, student service learning opportunities, social development and health education discussion groups, etc.;

Teacher Awareness Seminars:
These activities are designed to prepare teachers to enhance the relationships between school and home, as well as, to help teachers maximize educational resources available from the community.

Community Accentuating Positive Services (CAPS):
Through the mobilization of community partners, CAPS seeks to enhance student achievement, while promoting the school as a service providing institution. Moreover, CAPS activities and services are intended to strengthen all three prongs of family-school-community partnerships. CAPS elements include: (a) providing opportunities for students to gain service learning hours; (b) assisting in developing student apprenticeships with local vendors; (c) tying student achievement goals to incentives that community partners provide to students, families and schools; (d) offering opportunities for local vendors to increase business while aiding area schools and students.
