Students take on the role of software engineers, and practice skills that are used in the field. The Code.org curriculum for CSA is designed for any high school student who wishes to continue their computer science education after completing an introductory course such as Computer Science Discoveries (CSD) or Computer Science Principles (CSP) . Code.org’s curriculum will cover the content defined in the College Board framework for the AP CSA exam.
