AP Capstone

THE AP CAPSTONE PROGRAM (APC) is built on the foundation of two courses - AP Seminar and AP Research - This program is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. 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.

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. Students who earn a 3 or above in four or more AP courses and complete the two foundation courses are eligible for an AP Capstone Diploma.
