Radnor High School Earns AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Recognized for Improving Gender Representation in AP Computer Science A  

Radnor High School has earned the College Board AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A. Schools honored with the AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award have expanded girls’ access in AP computer science courses. In 2023, RHS was one of 225 recognized in the category of AP Computer Science A.

AP Computer Science A (CSA) students learn to design and implement computer programs that solve problems relevant to today’s society.

According to a Google study, 54% of female computer science majors took AP CSA in high school. College Board research about AP CSP also finds AP CSP students are nearly twice as likely to enroll in AP CSA, and that for most students, AP CSP serves as a stepping stone to other advanced AP STEM coursework. These findings highlight the importance of schools nationwide achieving gender parity in AP computer science classrooms.
