What kind of student should participate in AP Capstone?

Students who are motivated and prepared for college-level coursework are best suited for the program. The program also benefits those students who may have an interest in or show potential for AP coursework but have not yet enrolled in AP courses. Students should demonstrate curiosity about real-world issues, a willingness to take intellectual risks, and a dedication to acquiring the skills that colleges and universities value—critical inquiry, analysis, and research.
