AP Capstone™ program
Norfolk Collegiate is one of the first schools in Virginia to offer AP Capstone™, a rigorous, research-based program that builds on the extensive catalog of discipline-specific AP courses in the Upper School.
AP Capstone™ is an innovative new program from the College Board that capitalizes on the strengths of Norfolk Collegiate's current AP offerings to engage students in inquiry-based independent research, collaboration, and oral and written communication skills as they investigate contemporary issues and problems from multiple perspectives. Based on two foundational courses—AP Seminar and AP Research—the AP Capstone™ program offers highly qualified students the opportunity to earn either the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™ or the AP Capstone Diploma™.
