Columbine announces AP Capstone program for 2018-19 school year
This is the image for the news article titled Columbine announces AP Capstone program for 2018-19 school yearIt is with great pride and excitement to announce that Columbine has been chosen as one of a select chosen group of high schools to offer the Advanced Placement Capstone Diploma Program beginning the 2018/19 school year.  Columbine will be the first Jeffco Public school to offer the program.

Columbine has maintained a strong AP program for many years with students having had a great deal of success in the many AP courses and on the AP exams.  Last year, we had 416 students take 761 exams; 70% of those students earned a passing score of 3 or greater on those exams. ​In addition, 56 students were AP Scholars -- students who earned a 3 or better on 3 or more AP exams. These successes lead us to believe that the AP Diploma is attainable and within reach for Columbine​ ​students. 

In​ ​order​ ​for​ ​students​ ​to​ ​earn​ ​an​ ​AP​ ​Capstone​ ​Diploma​ ​they​ ​will​ ​have​ ​to:
● ​ ​Pass​ ​4​ ​AP​ ​Exams​ ​of​ ​their​ ​choice​ ​throughout​ ​their​ ​four​ ​years​ ​in​ ​high​ ​school.
● Take​ ​and​ ​pass​ ​the​ ​exams​ ​and​ ​requirements​ ​for​ ​both​ ​AP​ ​Seminar​ ​and​ ​AP​ ​Research.

If you have specific questions about the ​Columbine AP Capstone Program​, please contact Columbine High School Assistant​ ​Principal,​ ​Shannon​ ​Vigil​ ​at​ ​​Shannon.Vigil@jeffco.k12.co.us​​​.  Additionally, information will be available at the AP information night on January 23 at 6:30 pm in the Columbine Auditorium.
