The AP Capstone Diploma Program focuses on the inquiry, research, and writing skills crucial for success in college and careers.

To implement the program, Dreher will offer an AP Seminar in the fall 2016 and an AP Research course in the following year. These courses are in addition to the score of AP courses currently being offered to our students.

We are honored to be one of South Carolina's first schools to offer this innovative program, which will better prepare our diverse student population for college and career success and which will continue Dreher's proud tradition by expanding access to challenging course work and the development of important skills in accordance with our mission.
