Students stay at school while completing the St. Bonaventure University course Computer Science 101.
Cattaraugus-Little Valley High School students can earn three college credits by taking the SBU course CS 101. Beauty & Joy of Computer Science.
The course is taught at the school by high school physics teacher David Doty, with training, materials and problem sets provided by Dr. Anne Foerst, professor of computer science at St. Bonaventure. Dr. Foerst also provides periodic supervision on student assignments.
The course is for students with no prior programming experience and, therefore, open to any student who qualifies for general AP credit.
The cost of the course is $130 per credit-hour, or $390 for the 3-credit course.
To enroll in CS 101
- a student must be recommended for the course by a high school teacher, administrator and/or guidance counselor.
- a student must submit an application with St. Bonaventure's Office of Admissions to obtain permission to enroll.
