Computer Science Academy
Incoming freshmen: applications for the CHS Computer Science Academy are due Friday, February 28, 2020. Contact Tim Clark for more information.
The Computer Science Academy at Christopher High School will continue into its third year for incoming 9th graders in 2020/21! Our CS Academy provides four years of preparatory classes with hands-on opportunities to learn computer science skills using curriculum developed by Project Lead The Way (PLTW). If you like solving puzzles, you sound perfect for our program!
With each passing day, it becomes more difficult to name something that computer science doesn't touch. No matter if we're flying cross-country, using mobile apps to manage our daily lives, or perching on the edges of our seats at a movie theater, we're surrounded by computer science. At a time when computer science affects how we work and live, the CS Academy empowers students in grades 9-12 to become creators of the technology all around them.
As students work together to design solutions, they learn computational thinking ‒ not just how to code ‒ and transform themselves into builders of tech. The CS Academy's series of courses empowers students with in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
Please contact Mr. Clark if you or your parents have any questions.
