Wichita Collegiate School

Computer Science A emphasizes object-oriented programming methodology with an emphasis on problem solving and algorithm development and is meant to be the equivalent of a first-semester course in computer science. It also includes the study of data structures and abstraction. The course language is Java. Java is a platform independent programming language.

Wichita Collegiate School's curriculum is based on the classical liberal arts tradition that has guided independent schools for generations. Each graduate completes a broadly-based curriculum with an intensive study of literature, history, mathematics, laboratory science and foreign language. In addition, every student receives exposure to music, art, computer, and physical education. Our academic goal is to provide each Collegiate student with the best preparation possible for a rigorous undergraduate experience at a college.
