SBA is one of only a few select schools worldwide receiving AP Capstone™ distinction. AP Capstone™ is an innovative diploma program that allows students to develop the skills that matter most for college success: research, collaboration, and communication. Many colleges, both public and private, now recognize AP Capstone™ in the admissions process and it has recently been added to the Common Application.
