Computer Science Principles
Explore this rigorous, engaging, and approachable course to learn foundational ideas of computing and understand how these concepts are transforming our world.
Six different studies demonstrate students who study computer science perform better in other subjects, excel at problem-solving, and are more likely to attend college! Join us to bring Computer Science Principles to your high school.
Designed for 9 – 12 grade students, CSP challenges your students to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. CSP is a year-long course that can be taught as an AP or non-AP class.
- One 5-day summer workshop (virtual or in-person), which will fully prepare educators to utilize Code.org curricula and teacher support systems.
- Four 1-day (Saturday) OR eight ½-day (weeknight) workshops during the school year when teachers will reconvene for ongoing training and just-in-time support.

This training is offered at $1,500 per teacher – a 50% cost reduction thanks to Code.org and our generous supporters. This fee covers the full year-long program, including your teaching materials, workshop supplies, 9 total days of professional development, and your meals (when applicable) during workshops. Additional travel costs (when applicable) are not covered. The curriculum, online student learning platform, and access to support from the teacher and Code.org community are available to all schools year round, free of charge.
However, many teachers who attend Computer Science Discoveries workshops often qualify for partial and even full scholarship, further reducing the cost of this training to little or nothing.
If you teach in a rural area, a high-needs school or a school with a diverse student population, you are especially encouraged to apply. Email us today and we can help get you started.
