Shoreham-Wading River High School is proud to recognize 27 students from the Class of 2021 for their efforts in the AP Capstone Diploma program. The program helps students to develop critical thinking, research, collaboration and presentation skills that are critical to academic success.

Thirteen graduates were awarded the AP Capstone Diploma by earning scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar, AP Research and on four additional AP exams. They are Daniel Julian, William King, Meghan Klotz, Sarah Kruzynski, Emma Longboat, Paul Loscalzo, Matthew Martell, Caroline McDowell, Mika Misawa, Sofia Stirpe, Robert Troyano, Eleanora Undrus and Christopher Visintin.

Fourteen graduates were awarded the AP Seminar and Research Certificate by earning scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research. They are Erin Dany, Zachary Dapolito, Brooke Hackal, Jeffrey Lachenmeyer, Kelly Logan, India McKay, Josef Ochsenfeld, Eleanor Panasci, Brooke Roff, David Tedesco, Olivia Tingo, Larissa Verdi, Andrew Vignola and Olivia Wilcox.

“We proudly recognize the achievements of our Class of 2021 students who participated in the AP Capstone Diploma program,” Superintendent of Schools Gerard Poole said. “Our AP Capstone students and teachers showed extraordinary commitment while facing historic challenges. This is a meaningful college readiness program that will serve our students well after high school.”

Instead of focusing on one specific academic discipline, AP Seminar and AP Research are interdisciplinary: Students are empowered to create research projects based on topics of personal interest and they are assessed on the critical thinking, research, collaboration, time management and presentation skills needed to complete their projects.
