AP Capstone at PLU

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. Students who complete the two-year program can earn one of two different AP Capstone awards, which are valued by colleges across the United States and around the world.

For more details about the program, go to the College Board website.

For those schools that are approved to offer AP Capstone, there is a professional development opportunity for your teachers. Pacific Lutheran University is hoping to host a summer institute for AP Seminar and AP Research again in 2020.
