Mount Earns College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Mount Earns College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award

MSJA has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science Principles. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access in AP computer science courses.

More than 1,000 institutions achieved either 50% or higher female representation in one of the two AP computer science courses or a percentage of the female computer science exam takers meeting or exceeding that of the school’s female population during the 2020-21 school year. In 2021, Mount Saint Joseph Academy was one of 760 recognized in the category of AP Computer Science Principles (CSP).

“By encouraging young women to study advanced computer science coursework, Mount Saint Joseph Academy is closing the gap in computer science education and empowering young women to access the opportunities available in STEM career fields,” says Stefanie Sanford, College Board chief of Global Policy and External Relations. “Computer science is the foundation of many 21st-century career options, and young women deserve equal opportunities to pursue computer science education and drive technological innovation."
