The Computer Science program is intended for students who wish to pursue a post-secondary education in computer engineering. The course load offers students an opportunity to explore algorithms, design, and debugging through AP courses.

Due to the focus on computer science programs, students in this program will not have as much flexibility in choosing elective classes when making their schedules.
