AP Capstone

Welcome to the Dhahran High School AP Capstone Program website.  

The AP Capstone program requires a commitment to school beyond that of our regularly offered classes. Parents are respectfully requested to consider all aspects of the commitment when deciding whether or not to support their child’s application.

It is especially important parents and students understand that the AP Capstone is a program that gives students the opportunity to apply critical thinking, collaborative problem-solving and research in a cross-curricular context. AP Seminar requires students to participate collaboratively, engage in open-ended questioning and research and work in a less structured environment than they may be accustomed. The course requires intellectual maturity and a willingness to take risks.

AP courses are generally equivalent to first year university courses. Therefore, it is required that AP Capstone students must be prepared for and capable of handling material that is considered more rigorous than regular classes, especially with regards to time management.
