Pomona Catholic is proud to announce that we are an AP Capstone school. College Board's unique program prepares students for the rigor and challenge of college life through courses: AP Seminar and AP Research. Under the guidance of our talented faculty, students will learn to master argument-based writing skills and experience unique research opportunities. Students who complete and pass the program exams will be given the AP Seminar and Research Certificate. AP Capstone elevates our current Advanced Placement program by challenging students to integrate information learned through research and writing. Skills many students will not learn until they get to college.
AP Capstone™ is a College Board program that equips students with the independent research, collaborative teamwork, and communication skills that are increasingly valued by colleges. It cultivates curious, independent, and collaborative scholars and prepares them to make logical, evidence-based decisions.
AP Capstone is comprised of two AP courses - AP Seminar and AP Research - and is designed to complement and enhance the discipline-specific study in other AP courses. Participating schools can use the AP Capstone program to provide unique research opportunities for current AP students, or to expand access to AP by encouraging students to master the argument-based writing skills that the AP Capstone program develops.
