AP Capstone Program

  • AP Capstone


    Brandywine High School is proud to be an approved AP Capstone™ school, one of the few in Delaware to reach this designation.   AP Capstone is a diploma program based on two yearlong AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. These courses are designed to complement other AP courses that the AP Capstone student may take.  Instead of teaching specific subject knowledge, AP Seminar and AP Research use an interdisciplinary approach to develop the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills students need for college-level work.  The College Board developed the AP Capstone Diploma program at the request of higher education professionals, who saw a need for a systematic way for high school students to begin mastering these skills before college.  In order to earn the AP Capstone Diploma, students must score 3 or higher in AP Seminar, AP Research, and four additional AP exams of their choosing.
