Merion Mercy Earns the College Board's AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award
Merion Mercy has earned the College Board's AP® Computer Science Female Diversity Award for expanding young women's access to AP Computer Science Principles (CSP). This award acknowledges schools for their work toward equal gender representation during the 2019-20 school year. Merion Mercy is one of only 831 schools to be recognized for achieving this important result in CSP. The College Board points out, "New research shows that female students who take AP computer science are more likely to major in computer science in college compared with matched peers. Through your leadership in diversifying computer science education, you're 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." We are honored to receive this recognition and are committed to furthering the already robust programming we offer.
