Computer Science Female Diversity Award

Lansdale Catholic High School and our very own Mrs. Anne Templeton (Mathematics) were recognized this week 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 1,020 schools for their work toward equal gender representation during the 2020-21 school year. LC is one of only 199 schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in AP CSA, the only Archdiocesan school to earn this impressive distinction, and the only school in the entire region to have earned it through this rigorous AP course.
As stated in the Advanced Placement Program's press release, "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 over the moon that Mrs. Templeton was given this special honor, as she couldn't be more deserving! Congratulations to her and all of our female students who have taken AP CSA and brought this proud moment of recognition to LC.
You go, LC girls!
