TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Tupelo High School will launch a program in 2015 to push students to do college-level research.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1lUw5lD) the school was among 359 worldwide selected by the College Board to participate in the Advanced Placement Capstone program. Principal Jason Harris says Tupelo High was the only Mississippi school chosen.

Students will take two one-year courses. In the first, a group will complete a project and make a presentation. Students will also write a research essay and take an exam. In the second course, students will continue research, write a paper of at least 5,000 words and make a presentation.

Students scoring 3 or higher on exams for the courses and also scoring 3 or higher on four other AP exams will earn AP Capstone diplomas.
