Notre Dame is excited to offer AP Capstone in the 2021-2022 Academic year.

The AP Capstone Program is an innovative program that provides students with an opportunity to engage in the rigorous scholarly practice of the core academic skills necessary for successful college completion. AP Capstone is built on the foundation of two year-long courses--AP Seminar and AP Research--and is designed to complement and enhance the in-depth, discipline-specific study provided through AP courses. It cultivates curious, independent, and collaborative scholars and prepares them to make logical evidence-based decisions. The sequence of courses is shown in the below chart. Completion of the 15 credits of AP Seminar and AP Research will position students to earn the AP Capstone Certificate.
