CCS is proud to be one of approximately 2,100 high schools worldwide to be recognized as an AP Capstone School. This innovative College Board program consists of two courses, AP Seminar and AP Research, taken during the junior and senior years of high school. The courses teach students skills including college-level independent research, collaboration, teamwork, writing and communication that can be used in any discipline.
Original research was conducted this year by six members of the Class of 2021. We are pleased to announce that all students successfully completed the AP Research Academic Paper and Presentation. Abigail Gilreath, David Quarles, Blake Stovall, Sydney Wax and Abigail Young have been awarded the AP Capstone Diploma. Additionally, Kelsey Wimsatt has been awarded the AP Capstone Certificate.
"This group had some close calls, a lot of laughs, and too much caffeine," remarked Mr. Leonard when first hearing about the success of the researchers. "I am thankful to have been a small part in their journey through this program and I look forward to seeing their achievements in the future. I am going to miss them."
