The Episcopal School of Dallas has become one of the first independent schools in Texas to offer the AP Capstone program.
AP Capstone is an innovative diploma program that allows students to develop the skills that matter most for college success. This includes research, collaboration, and communication, and complements the other AP courses and exams offered at ESD.
The Capstone program consists of two courses: AP Seminar and AP Research, which will begin in the fall of 2017 and equip students with the ability to tackle real-world issues from multiple perspectives. Students who earn scores of 3 or higher on AP Seminar and AP Research assessments and on four additional AP Exams of their choosing will earn the AP Capstone Diploma. This signifies their outstanding academic achievement and attainment of college-level academic and research skills.
ESD is excited to implement the program next fall and looks forward to the new opportunities and educational challenges it will provide our students.
