Advanced Academic Programming (AAP- Grades 4-6) is an opportunity for elementary students to take part in enriched and challenging academic programming, deepening their learning in one or more particular subjects. Such programming prepares students to continue their advanced academic course work (Enhanced Academic Programming) in junior high and, eventually, in Advanced Placement (AP) programming in high school. AAP students complete academically advanced assignments within their core courses through an inquiry-based approach to learning.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha Academy will inspire students to learn about the MCHS Computer Science AP course by visiting the program and by taking up exploration of computing science as a tool for learning in dynamic options and transferring within and across subjects and grades. For example, during “Hour of Code Week”, as an example, all students will be introduced to and take part in computer science activities at an age-appropriate level.
