Level 4: Topics in Computer Science

Community home page

or browse    
At this level, interested and qualified students should be able to select one from among several electives to gain depth of understanding or special skills in particular areas of computer science. All of these electives will require the Level II course as a prerequisite, while some may require the Level III course as well. Most importantly, these courses provide students with an opportunity to explore topics of personal interest in greater depth, and thus prepare themselves for the workplace or for further study at the post-secondary level.

  • L4 A: Advanced Placement Computer Science (A & AB levels)

    The AP Computer Science curriculum is well established, and is offered at many secondary schools for students planning to continue their education in a two- or four-year college or university, possibly in computer science, business, or a related field.

  • L4 B: Projects-Based Courses

    This kind of course would be available to all students who have completed the Level I and II curricula. Some variants of this course would also require completion of Level III (see below). This could be either a half-year or a full-year course.

  • L4 C: Courses Leading Toward Industry Certification

    Such courses are primarily geared toward students planning on entering the workforce, continuing their education in a post-secondary technical school, or entering a two-year college AAS program. Students taking these courses should have completed the Level I and Level II courses.
