Why Take Computer Science Classes?

  • Computer Science has become a fundamental subject
    • Computer Programming is becoming a core skill and tool for all different professions.
    • Sharpen logical thinking and problem solving skill
    • Be challenged and reach higher!
  • Why learn Java?
    • Java is the most popular computer programming language. Read more about it.
    • Java is the official language required and tested for AP Computer Science A
    • Java is becoming the most used language in USACO
  • Why Learn AP Computer Science A
    • Our AP Computer Science A course prepares students to succeed in the AP Computer Science A exam from CollegeBoard.  Students must already possessed basic Java programming skills to continue into this course, which covers advanced topics such as object-oriented methodologies, fundamental data structures and algorithms, and more.
  • Why Learn USACO
    • USACO stands for USA Computing Olympiad. The best contestants participate in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI), the most prestigious international computing contest at the high school level.
    • Our USACO courses provide rigorous training to students for advanced logical thinking and problem solving, a skill that is extremely valuable and much seeked after to prepare students for higher level educations.
