2023 AP CAPSTONE STUDENT SUCCESS

CCS is proud to be one of approximately 450 high schools in the state of Texas 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 year 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 five members of the Class of 2023. We are pleased to announce that all students passed the AP Research Academic Paper and Presentation. Luc Shyaka-Ngabo earned the AP Capstone Diploma through successful completion of AP Research, AP Seminar and four other AP courses. Lucy Davis, Connor Keim, Kiley Kreitz, and Matthew LeForce each earned the AP Capstone Certificate.

“As it relates to overall AP scoring, this group was statistically the most successful AP Research class ever at CCS. However, I am most proud of their care and concern for one another throughout this process,” remarked Mr. Leonard. “This group will always be special to me because they had a genuine love for each other. I am going to miss them very much.”
