Virtual Saints offers competitively priced, for-credit virtual classes during the school year to our current Saints community and to students from other schools in grades 9-12. This program will serve academically motivated students who wish to complete a required course to create more room in their regular schedule, or take a high-interest elective course that is typically not offered during the school year. Participating in this program will create more opportunities for students to take a wide array of specialized classes later in their high school years.

The dates for Year Long Virtual Saints courses are September 8 – April 20, 2021.

    The AP Computer Science Principles (APCSP) introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. Students will develop computational thinking vital for success across all disciplines, such as using tools to analyze and study data as well as working with large data sets to analyze, visualize, and draw conclusions from trends. The course is unique in its focus on fostering student creativity. Students are encouraged to apply creative processes when developing computational artifacts and to think creatively while using computer software and other technology to explore questions that interest them. They will also develop effective communication and collaboration skills, working individually and collaboratively to solve problems, and discussing and writing about the importance of these problems and the impacts to their community, society, and the world.
