AP Capstone Diploma Program

AP Capstone is an academically rigorous diploma program which provides students the opportunity to obtain the core academic skills necessary for successful university or college completion.

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 them to make logical, evidence-based decisions.

Students are awarded an AP Capstone Diploma based on the successful completion of the two foundational AP Capstone courses and four additional AP Exams of their choosing.

Benefits of AP Capstone for students include:

  • Fosters the research, argumentation, and communication skills that are at the core of college readiness and essential for lifelong learning
  • Provides a setting to build on the knowledge and regorous course work of AP in an interdisciplinary format
  • Offers students a unique oppotunity to distinguish themselves to colleges and universities

More details about the AP Capstone program can be found on the College Board's website, including the AP Capstone Student Brochure.
