Trinity recognized for efforts to close the ‘gender gap’ in computer science
Advanced Placement and College Readiness at College Board congratulates Trinity Collegiate School (TCS) for earning the College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women’s access to AP Computer Science Principles for the 2019-20 school year. This honor acknowledges the work Trinity Collegiate School has done to close the gender equity gap in computer science. Only 831 schools across the nation were recognized for achieving this important result in AP Computer Science Principles. Ed Hoffman, Head of School, said, “The AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award can be attributed to Trinity’s outstanding students, teachers, and robust academic program which boasts 22 AP Courses, 12 Pre-AP Courses, and various Dual Credit Courses through Coker University.” New research shows that female students who take AP Computer Science are more likely to major in computer science and in college compared to matched peers (visitcollegeboard.org/apcsp).
