AP Capstone


AP Capstone Application for incoming 10th and 11th graders CLICK HERE.


Carlsbad High School is please to offer the AP Capstone Program beginning in the Fall of 2017 for Juniors.  


The College Board’s AP Capstone is an innovative and engaging college-level program for high school students that complements and enhances discipline-specific AP courses. It’s built on two new courses—AP Seminar and AP Research—that immerse students in the practice of critical skills needed to distinguish themselves in college and life. AP Capstone is the pinnacle of the high school experience, encouraging a passion for learning and transforming students into curious, collaborative, and independent thinkers with skills that are valued and sought after by colleges and universities.


Sequence of Classes


Students typically take AP Seminar in grade 10 or 11, followed by AP Research. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams of their choosing receive the AP Capstone Diploma™. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research but not on four additional AP Exams receive the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™.
