CAPSTONE DIPLOMA PROGRAM
AP Capstone™ is a diploma program based on two year long AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. These courses are designed to complement other AP courses that the AP Capstone student may take.
Instead of teaching specific subject knowledge, AP Seminar and AP Research use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills students need for college-level work.
The College Board developed the AP Capstone Diploma program at the request of higher education professionals, who saw a need for a systematic way for high school students to begin mastering these skills before college.
Participating in AP Capstone can help students:
• Stand out to colleges in the application process.
• Develop key academic skills they’ll use in college and beyond.
• Become self-confident, independent thinkers and problem solvers.
• Earn college credit: Many colleges offer credit for qualifying scores.
