“We are proud to rec­og­nize the out­stand­ing achieve­ments of stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated in the AP Cap­stone Diploma pro­gram,” said BCPS In­terim Su­per­in­ten­dent Ver­letta White. “Through­out our school sys­tem we im­ple­ment ini­tia­tives such as AP Cap­stone, in­de­pen­dent re­search projects, Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy Ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams, and more to en­able stu­dents to ex­plore their pas­sions while build­ing col­legelevel aca­demic and col­lab­o­ra­tion skills.”

Through­out the AP Cap­stone pro­gram, AP Sem­i­nar and AP Re­search stu­dents study a va­ri­ety of top­ics across mul­ti­ple dis­ci­plines and have the flex­i­bil­ity to choose top­ics of per­sonal in­ter­est to show mas­ter y of crit­i­cal think­ing, re­search, and pre­sen­ta­tion skills.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to the AP Cap­stone award win­ners, who con­duct, present, and de­fend aca­demic re­search on top­ics they are pas­sion­ate about,” said Trevor Packer, Col­lege Board se­nior vice pres­i­dent of AP and In­struc­tion. “Their abil­ity to man­age long-term projects, col­lab­o­rate with teams, and de­liver ef­fec­tive pre­sen­ta­tions will ac­cel­er­ate not only their aca­demic ca­reers, but their pro­fes­sional ca­reers as well.”

Over 1,100 schools par­tic­i­pated in the AP Cap­stone pro­gram world­wide dur­ing the 2017-18 school year when ap­prox­i­mately 4,800 stu­dents earned the AP Cap­stone Diploma and 2,400 earned the AP Sem­i­nar and Re­search Cer­tifi­cate.
