About Us

Founded as a partnership between Carolyn Weirick and Dr. Shelley Enger, the Capstone team has grown as the needs and interests of our students and their families have grown. We serve students with a broad range of career goals in the liberal arts and sciences, but we are also specialists with extensive professional backgrounds in our specialty areas, including STEM, the health sciences, the social sciences, business, and high school counseling. We also provide exceptional resources and support for students with learning differences, and we support students who are seeking colleges with Division III athletic programs. The Capstone team will provide your student with personalized support, based on best practices, to help them achieve their educational goals.

"They understood the importance of providing reassurance, instilling confidence and creating a space where the girls can own and orchestrate their own success.”

-Maurice S., Capstone Parent

“With our first college-bound child Capstone helped us navigate completely uncharted waters. It was such a smooth process and so educational for both our student and us.”

“The Capstone team helped my child get into their dream school but also helped them explore and find other schools that were not even on our radar.”
