“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 college-level 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 mastery 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.
