The AP Computer Science A course is a tech-prep, computer programming course that prepares students for post secondary study in a high-demand occupation. The course emphasizes software development, problem analysis, programming methodology, documentation and testing, and an in-depth study of algorithms, data structures, and data abstractions. Students in the AP Computer Science A course use the Java programming language to learn and practice major computer science concepts and also work with a large program as they examine and explore various College Board case studies. At the end of the prescribed number of course hours, students may take the AP Computer Science A exam for course units at most colleges and universities.
