AP Capstone Diploma

The American Community School has adopted the Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone as part of the high school program. AP Capstone is a diploma program that was launched by the College Board as of the 2014-2015 school year. 

AP Capstone will complement the existing AP program and is comprised of two courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. 

Students can take AP Seminar in the 11th or 12th grade, followed by AP Research. Students will receive the AP Capstone Diploma when they earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams they select in high school. 

The AP Capstone Diploma will signify the students' outstanding college-level academic achievement and research skills. 

Students may also receive the AP Seminar and Research Certificate as an alternative to the fill Capstone Diploma by earning scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research without taking additional AP courses. This will signify their attainment of college-level academic and research skills.
