The following information is for students who are considering participating in the Silicon Valley capstone course that occurs in the spring semester. This information is specific to the capstone experience "Designing and Leading a Business" at the Silicon Valley campus in California.

The California School Performance Fact Sheet provides information about completion rates and time frame, placement rates and salary and wage information for students participating in the Silicon Valley capstone course "Designing and Leading a Business."
