A Successful First Year of AP Capstone at NKEC

Spring 2017 exam results from the first year of the AP Capstone program at Northeast Kings Education Centre are in, and they show that NKEC students exceeded global average scores in every Advanced Placement (AP) subject area in which they were enrolled. AP Capstone is a program that encourages students to develop university-level research and communication skills. NKEC is the first school in the Maritime provinces to offer this program which comprises two Advanced Placement (AP) courses—AP Seminar and AP Research—in addition to discipline-specific study in other AP courses. Principal Kevin Veinot says, “It has been a very rewarding experience to be able to offer such a rigorous academic program at NKEC for our strong academic students. Universities in the Atlantic provinces accept each AP course as equivalent to first-year courses. This means some of our students may have achieved their first year of university study before they even arrive on campus!” Congratulations to NKEC’s AP Capstone students for this high level of achievement!
