Rich in diversity, AP class offerings at Jesuit fulfill our young men both intellectually and spiritually. However, we at Jesuit always strive for new classes to challenge and enrich our students, and thus we asked: 

  • What if there was a class for incoming Sophomores and Juniors where students could study something they are passionate about, something they determine instead of what is assigned to them, something they could study in depth like never before?
  • What if there was a class where students could learn how to do their absolute best work, both individually and with their peers, and then own the results as they present and publish their findings?

And now at Jesuit, there is a way: with AP Capstone™ courses and the new AP Capstone Diploma™ program beginning in Fall 2019!

FOR 2019-2020 the AP Seminar – the first course in the two-course series – will be available for Sophomores and Juniors.

So what is AP Capstone(APC)? APC is built on the foundation of two courses - AP Seminar and AP Research. Each course is one year long and must be taken consecutively beginning in either the Sophomore or Junior year. APC is designed to help students develop the research, critical thinking and communication skills they’ll need in order to be successful in college and in other professional environments.
