29 A+ College Ready Schools in Alabama Honored with AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award

 A+ College Ready is proud to announce that 29 current or previous program schools have been awarded the College Board’s AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award. According to the College Board, this award recognizes schools that are closing the gender gap and expanding young women’s access to computer science coursework in AP Computer Science Principles (AP CSP) and AP Computer Science A (AP CSA). Specifically, College Board honors schools that have either reached 50% or higher female examinee representation in one of or both AP computer science courses, or whose percentage of the female examinees met or exceeded that of the school’s female population.
