Computer Science Academy

About this Major

Graduates from the Academy should be planning to pursue a college or university track to obtain a degree in some discipline of computer science. College credit for Advanced Placement courses is available upon passing the appropriate AP College Board Exam(s). Universities vary in their recognition of AP credits. Therefore, the number of available credit hours will depend upon the policies of the specific university the graduate plans to attend.

Licensure/Certifications

Advanced Placement (AP) college credit is available for students who pass AP tests in Calculus, Computer Science, or Physics.

Entrance Requirements

Academy students must be high school sophomores, juniors or seniors. Students can attend up to three (3) years.
