• The Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Academy is offered at both Northside High School and Richlands High School. The Program is designed to provide students an opportunity to apply critical thinking, collaborative problem solving, and research skills in a cross-curricular context. Students will engage in a rigorous academic experience combined with the support systems necessary for success.

    The College Board’s AP Capstone Program is built on the foundation of a new, two-year high school course sequence – AP Seminar and AP Research – and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. The Capstone program will also expose students to performance tasks, research methodology, and multimedia communication. Successful completion of the Capstone program will culminate in the students’ ability to make cross-curricular connections and possess the skill sets to conduct college level research while working toward earning the AP Capstone Diploma or AP Capstone Certificate.
