Advanced Placement Open House

January 27, 2022 at 6:00 pm (virtual meeting)

Please join us for our AP Open House!

Advanced Placement provides academic rigour and prepares students for post-secondary education. Flexibility is one of the program’s key tenets allowing students to take a full Advanced Placement course load or individual courses based on student interests and strengths. Join the virtual information session to learn more about the program, how it works and how to succeed in Advanced Placement. After the session, participants will break into smaller virtual meets to ask questions and discuss programming.

Capstone Diploma Program

AP Capstone™ is a diploma program based on two AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. These yearlong courses focus on developing the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management, and presentation skills you need for college-level work.


If you earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams of your choice, you’ll receive the AP Capstone Diploma™. If you earn scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research, you’ll receive the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™. Students earning an AP Capstone Diploma qualify to receive three 100-level credits from the University of Alberta.


AP Seminar


In this course, you’ll learn to consider an issue from multiple perspectives, identify credible

sources, evaluate strengths and weaknesses of arguments, and make logical, evidence based

recommendations. You’ll investigate a variety of topics through various viewpoints

of your choice.


During the course, you’ll complete a team project and an individual paper and presentation,

as well as take a written end-of-course exam. These components contribute to the overall

AP Seminar score.


AP Research


In AP Research, you’ll explore various research methods and complete an independent

research project. Your project can build on a topic, problem, or issue you covered in

AP Seminar or on a brand new topic of your own choosing.


At the end of the project, you’ll submit your academic paper and present and defend your

research findings. These components contribute to the overall AP Research score. There is

no end-of-course exam.
