AP Capstone Magnet

AP Capstone™ is a diploma program from the College Board. It's based on two yearlong AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Rather than teaching subject-specific content, these courses develop students' skills in research, analysis, evidence-based arguments, collaboration, writing, and presenting.

The AP Capstone magnet program builds the skills of critical inquiry essential for success in college and in life. Students integrate, synthesize, and make cross-curricular connections; plan and conduct a study or investigation, and propose solutions to real-world problems. Students may earn either the AP Capstone Diploma™ or the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™.
