Advanced Placement Capstone
In 2015, QISM is launching a new and innovative AP Capstone Diploma program that was designed by College Board to equip students with skills vital for academic success at a university. The program consists of two key courses, AP Seminar and AP Research, and at least four other AP courses. Students who successfully complete the core courses receive an AP Capstone Certificate. Students who obtain scores of 3 or higher on at least four other AP exams receive an AP Capstone Diploma.
AP Capstone diploma is currently recognized by over 100 universities, including Harvard University, MIT, University of California, Berkeley, Georgetown University, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, to name a few. Holders of AP Capstone Diploma have a significant advantage in the university acceptance process and receive college credit for the AP classes they have successfully completed in high school. Only 12 International schools have been selected to participate in AP Capstone in 2014-15, and next year, QISM is the only small international school that was selected by College Board to implement this wonderful program. It is a great honor for our school and an amazing opportunity for our students.
Current AP Courses - AP English Language and Composition, AP Computer Science, AP Psychology, AP Physics, AP Statistics, and AP Russian (prototype). In 2015, more courses will be added to accommodate the capstone program.
Our accreditation through the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA) ensures that students are receiving an universally recognized diploma that prepares them for a bright academic future. Since 1887, the prestigious MSA accreditation is considered the gold standard for schools as it verifies the quality of each member school through yearly reporting and visitations. At QISM we take our membership in MSA quite seriously by actively planning and implementing improvement plans to create a strong school environment.
