This course is designed for the highly motivated students with strong writing skills.

As you know, Advanced Placement® courses are college-level courses offered in high school. They can give your child a taste of what college is like and can help him or her stand out on college applications. Not only that, but scoring well on the AP® Exam can get your child college credit, placement out of introductory courses or both, potentially saving thousands of dollars in tuition and fees.

AP Capstone™ is an innovative diploma program that helps you stand out in the college admission process by developing the critical skills needed to succeed in college and in life. Students typically take AP Seminar in the 10th or 11th grade, followed by AP Research. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher on the AP Seminar and AP Research Exams and on four additional AP Exams of their choosing will receive the AP Capstone Diploma™. This signifies outstanding academic achievement and attainment of college-level academic and research skills. Alternatively, students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research will receive the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™ signifying their attainment of college-level academic and research skills.

We hope that you will encourage your child(ren) to inquire about the requirements to become qualified to participate in the AP Capstone™ program.

Thank you,
