Pre-AP Program

Pre-AP courses follow a College Board curriculum that emphasizes close reading and analysis, critical thinking, and interpreting sources. In the classroom, students engage with a wide variety of primary source materials, read and write different types of essays, and engage deeply with each others’ ideas.

AP Capstone Program

JPII is one of the few schools in the area to have been selected to implement this innovative and rigorous program.  AP Capstone is a diploma program that allows students to develop the skills that matter most for college success: research, collaboration, and communication.

The program consists of two courses taken in sequence: AP Seminar and AP Research. Developed in direct response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subject-specific study of other Advanced Placement courses and exams.
