The AP Capstone Program is a two-year seminar and research course that explores real-world issues while focusing on developing critical analysis, communication and investigative skills.

AP Capstone, developed by CollegeBoard, 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.

Ultimately, this two-year process reveals a student’s ability to collect, evaluate, analyze and synthesize knowledge and information, and then communicate their findings. 

Students that are self-motivated and interested in enhancing their inquiry, research, collaboration, and communication skills by studying topics of global relevance from an interdisciplinary perspective will be most successful in AP Capstone. The AP Capstone program fosters critical and creative thinking while providing students a unique opportunity to distinguish themselves when applying to colleges and universities. In AP Seminar, student success depends on the ability of every student to speak in class discussions, and work and present with small groups.
