AP Capstone

Lane Tech was one of one hundred schools in the entire world to pilot the AP Capstone program through the College Board, which began in the 2014-2015 school year. In the AP Capstone program, students are required to take any four AP classes in addition to AP Seminar, typically taken in grade 11, and AP Research, typically taken in grade 12. Students who scored an 80% average or higher on the NWEA Reading and SEHS Reading Comprehension portions of the selective enrollment process may begin taking AP classes as freshmen (AP Human Geography). Students who scored below an 80% average may begin taking AP classes their sophomore year. Students who complete the required coursework and earn a 3 or higher on the AP Exams will receive the AP Capstone Diploma, which is designated on their transcript and recognized by colleges worldwide. Freshmen who are interested in taking AP Capstone should select one of the five areas of concentration on the enrollment form and will work with their counselors annually to plan their courses for sophomore, junior, and senior year.

Developed in collaboration with the Association of American Colleges and Universities, The Partnership for 21st Century Skills, Common Core State Standards Initiative, and the Council of Writing Program Administrators, the AP Capstone Diploma is highly regarded as a top distinction awarded by the College Board, which is extremely beneficial for college admittance and future academic goals.  Select the link below for full information about the AP Capstone program.
