Computer Science Concentration
The Computer Science Concentration is designed for students interested in the field of computer science and the intricacies of programming. It is designed to give students a solid base in both theoretical and practical topics in computer science, computer engineering, and mathematics while leaving flexibility for scheduling other courses of interest. The study of Computer Science prepares students to deal with using and improving computers as tools for numerous applications. Students who complete the academy will have completed two Computer Science AP courses along with other preceding coursework. If you continue with Computer Science coursework in college, graduates are able to move into high-tech careers as software engineers, systems analysts, technical writers, web developers, researchers, programmers, and software testers. They may also apply their computer skills to enhance careers as biologists, architects, teachers, and psychologists.
