LC Math Teacher Earns Back to Back AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Lansdale Catholic High School and our very own Mrs. Anne Templeton (Mathematics) were recognized for the second year in a row by the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board for diversifying Computer Science education!
Lansdale Catholic has earned the College Board's APĀ® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women's access to AP Computer Science A (CSA). This award acknowledges 1,105 schools for their work toward equal gender representation during the 2021-2022 school year. LC is one of only 209 schools to be recognized for achieving this recognition for the rigorous course AP Computer Science A, and we have recently added AP Computer Science Principles to our course selection for students in the future. Only 64 schools in the country have received distinction for both of these Computer Science courses.
As stated by the Advanced Placement Program, "You are preparing your female students for the high-paying, in-demand jobs of the future and giving them the opportunity to help solve some of society's most challenging problems." Research shows that female students who take AP Computer Science are more likely to major in Computer Science in college compared to female students of similar background and academic preparation who didn't take AP Computer Science courses.
We are so proud that Lansdale Catholic High School was given this special honor! Congratulations to Mrs. Templeton and all of our female students who have taken AP CSA and brought this proud moment of recognition to LC. These students include: Cami '23, Caroline '23, Elizabeth '23, Faith '22, Gianna '22, Grace '23, Jordan '22, Julia '22, Kayla '22, Maddie '22, Maggie '23, and Raegan '22.
Way to go, LC girls!
