No the scapula (other wise known as the shoulder) is not part of the Axial Skeleton. The Axial Skeleton is composed of 80 bones that are in your head and trunk. The bones within the Axial Skeleton are bones that cover and protect either your brain, spinal cord or vital organs such as the heart. The scapula does not protect either of these, therefor it is not included in the axial skeleton.
