VHS announces a new computing certificate program to commemorate Computer Science Education Week (#CSEdWeek).
The new VHS computing certificate program aims to encourage students to become interested in computing and to better understand the career options available to them in CS and related fields. The program complements other recent VHS computer science initiatives. In fall 2016, the organization launched AP® Computer Science Principles, an introductory college-level computer science course designed for all students in grades 10-12, not just those interested in STEM subjects.
The Virtual High School is also a member of the non-profit CSforAll Consortium whose goal is to expand access to computer science education for all students. The CSforAll Consortium provides a central location for access to computer science education providers, schools, funders and researchers.
