Beginning in the spring of their Junior Year, members will complete a capstone project as a culminating experience that is:
An academic extension of elective focus or community service
Developed by senior in collaboration with a mentor
Showcases research, writing, and presentation skills
Advanced Placement Capstone
AP Capstone is built on the foundation of two courses — AP Seminar and AP Research — and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. It cultivates curious, independent, and collaborative scholars and prepares students to make logical, evidence-based decisions.
If a student earns scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams of his/her choosing, the student will receive the AP Capstone Diploma™.
