Students enrolled in the Honors Institute study a discrete program of courses designed to prepare them for the most academically rigorous colleges in the world. They complete a range of AP courses, and all non-AP courses are taken at Honors level. Students complete a ‘blended’ Honors Institute Seminar program that culminates with the College Board’s AP Capstone Diploma.
The AP Capstone is an innovative diploma program that helps students stand out in the college application process. It is a challenging program that deepens a student’s passion for learning, enhances their academic skills, and provides a broader perspective on the world. Bishop Alemany High School is one of only two high schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles that has been selected by the College Board to offer this program.
