AP Capstone Program (APC)

The AP Capstone Program (APC) is a flexible, rigorous two-year program for grades 11-12 designed to help students develop the research, critical thinking and communication skills they’ll need in order to be successful in college and in other professional environments. The program is composed of two separate components, the Seminar Course and the Research Course. An array of instructional methods such as lecture, class discussion/debate, research assessment and student-centered assignments are used to prepare students. Students work independently and in groups to develop critical thinking and foster creativity.
