AP Computer Science A - Java Programming

  • Grades:  11, 12

    Advanced Placement Computer Science A explores and builds on the problem solving and programming techniques learned in in previous courses or through individual exploration. You will write programs using the Java computer programming language that will prepare you for the AP Computer Science A exam, and based on those results you may earn college credit or test out of a course at your chosen university. This course is equivalent to a comparable college level course.
    The State of Indiana requires students to sit for AP exams in order to qualify for the Academic Honors Diplomas as well as the new Graduation Pathway requirements.  Therefore, any student at Noblesville High School enrolled in a College Board Advanced Placement course will be required to sit for the corresponding exam.  Cumulative grade point averages will be re-calculated retroactively without the grade weight for students who do not take the exam.  The cost of AP assessments are decided by the College Board; however, the cost of this exam is currently covered by the State of Indiana.
