AP Capstone Student Success

CCS is proud to be one of approximately 2,300 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 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 10 members of the Class of 2022. We are pleased to announce that all students successfully completed the AP Research Academic Paper and Presentation. Colin Burns, Griffin Fisk, Aaron Holl, Grace Macune, Ana Sofia Navarro, Jackson Owen, Pearson Pollard, Anthony Shatby and Andrew Williams each earned the AP Capstone Diploma. Additionally, Claire Achterkirch has earned the AP Capstone Certificate.

“With initial research topics ranging from the global power grid to considerations in urban planning, I knew this group would be special,” commented Mr. Leonard upon hearing of the students’ successes. Mr. Leonard added, “This group was full of talent, and the GoGuardian technology provided by CCS helped them along the way. I will miss this group, but GoGuardian and I are anxiously awaiting the next group of talented researchers.”
