What College and University Faculty and Admission Professionals Are Saying

[Through this program] you get students turned on to higher education in a way they are not currently and they enter university with a different kind of attitude.”
— Susan Roth, Vice Provost for Interdisciplinary Studies, Duke University
The AP Capstone program will help students to develop critical thinking skills that allow them to think independently, to analyze issues from different perspectives, to communicate clearly, and to conduct independent research. These are exactly the types of skills that they will be expected to utilize in college, and the AP Capstone program will give them a terrific head start.
— Zina L. Evans, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Associate Provost, University of Florida

 

The ability to guide the student toward understanding where a research method is valid needs to be explicitly taught.
— Ellen Woods, Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Director of Thinking Matters, Stanford University
AP Capstone provides more of the learning students will need for success in college and beyond. . . . We want them to come in ready to analyze issues from multiple perspectives, integrating disparate ideas and comfortable with innovation, so they can make real contributions when they get here.
— Ken O’Donnell, Senior Director, Student Engagement, California State University, Office of the Chancellor
