One of the newest programs at SSLI is the nationally acclaimed AP Capstone track. The AP Capstone program focuses on critical analysis, with an emphasis on credibility.
The Pre-Capstone program introduces our ninth graders to the fundamentals of fact-based research. The research topics are driven by the students’ individual interests. This encourages them to pursue interests and develop passions for topics they might not otherwise cover in high school.
AP Seminar, taken in the 10th grade, teaches our students to make evidence-based arguments by gathering, critiquing and evaluating information from multiple sources. AP Research (11th grade) then takes this one step further, emphasizing independent research as a way to develop and defend one’s own scholarly work.
