The AP (Advanced Placement) curriculum, administered by the College Board, consists of standardized high school courses that are roughly equivalent to undergraduate college courses. After completing an AP class, students take the AP exam in that subject, which can earn them credits and accelerated placement in college.
Pine Tree ISD is excited to participate in the AP Capstone Program, which was implemented in the 2017-18 school year.
AP Capstone is an advanced diploma program that debuted in 2014 with the first AP Capstone diplomas being awarded to 2015 graduates. To earn the diploma, students must complete two required AP Classes - AP Seminar and AP Research - along with four more AP classes of their choosing. Students must earn a 3 or higher on each exam to be awarded the diploma.
