Sixty-six (66) FCPS students earned the Advanced Placement (AP) ® Capstone Diploma and twenty-three (23) students earned the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™ during the 2020-2021 school year.

AP Capstone™ is a diploma program from the College Board based on two year-long AP courses: AP Seminar and AP Research.  Both courses prepare students for college and career success through the development of critical thinking, academic research, collaboration, presentation, and time management skills.  Throughout the AP Capstone program, 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.  Official AP Seminar and AP Research assessments include academic papers, multimedia presentations, and defense of findings.

FCPS AP Capstone students focused their research on a range of topics including: Examining gender’s role in audience perception of character, the effect of the transition to online learning on high school students’ sleep quantity and quality, and the extent of racial stereotyping in Twenty First-Century Blockbuster Romantic Comedies.
