Senior High School (SHS) students of Enderun Colleges earn college credits through the AP (Advancement Placement) Capstone Diploma Program — a two-year diploma program that gives high school students the opportunity to take college-level classes in Grades 11 and 12.

Enderun Colleges is one of two schools that offer the AP Capstone Diploma, which was launched in 1956 in the United States.

Students are trained to develop their interdisciplinary skills in ways that are integral to the jobs of the future. They are also able to enhance their critical thinking while considering multiple perspectives in a number of disciplines.

Faculty members are internationally-trained and well-equipped with knowledge and practice aligned with the workshop held by AP.

Upon completion of the program, students can earn one of two different AP Capstone awards, AP Capstone Diploma or AP Seminar and Research Certificate.

The AP Seminar and AP Research interdisciplinary classes, which run yearlong, end in an AP Exam which is graded from zero to five. To earn credit, students must score at least a three (70 percent) on the standardized exam.
