Sacred Heart Academy earns AP Computer Science Diversity Award

Sacred Heart Academy earned the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A and AP Computer Science Principles. Schools honored with this distinction have expanded access to AP computer science courses to young women.

According to an announcement from Sacred Heart Academy, “Of the 20,000 institutions that offer AP courses, 818 achieved this important result during the 2018-2019 school year — nearly 20% more than the 685 schools recognized last year. In 2019, Sacred Heart Academy was one of only 36 to be recognized for closing the gender gap in both AP computer science courses.”
