Students at Portville and Scio central schools can earn college credits by taking a St. Bonaventure University computer science course without leaving their respective schools.
A second computer course may be offered as well, if there is sufficient enrollment.
The 4-credit course, CS/CSL 131. Computer Science I & Laboratory, is taught by Scio High School teacher Michael Pavlock, with training and materials provided by Dr. Steven Andrianoff, professor emeritus of computer science at St. Bonaventure.
Pavlock delivers the course in-person to Scio students and by distance-learning technology to students in Portville.
A second course, CS/CSL 132. Computer Science II & Lab, is available, if there is sufficient student interest. That course is taught by Dr. Andrianoff in person at Portville Central School, with students in Scio attending via an online delivery platform.
Students must take CS/CSL 131 before enrolling in CS/CSL 132.
The cost of each course is $130 per credit-hour, or $520 for each of the 4-credit courses.
To enroll in CS/CSL 131, a student must:
- be at least a first-semester sophomore. Selected freshmen may participate upon SBU approval on a case-by-case basis.
- demonstrate high self-motivation and academic achievement. Success in high school Algebra is recommended.
- be recommended by high school teachers, administrators and/or guidance counselor.
- submit an application with St. Bonaventure's Office of Admissions to obtain permission to enroll.
