General Program Info

Given the nature of the LACC program requiring laboratory and graduate student resources, we are able to accept only a limited number of participants. To be considered for participation in LACC, you should be in 10th, 11th, or 12th grades (or will be entering these grades the next Fall), have a GPA of at least 3.0, and have an excellent record in science and mathematics. LACC challenges students beyond what most high schools offer and is not a remedial program. Applicants should have a strong interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), particularly computing, in order to benefit from LACC. Some prior experience in programming and/or electronics is beneficial but is not required.

The program is open to all eligible students. We especially encourage participation by students from LAUSD schools, female students, and ethnicities that are under-represented in STEM.

We do not charge any fees from program participants, but we are also unable to provide financial assistance for travel, lodging, and other personal costs that you may incur for participation in LACC. 

Beyond the courses such as AP CS found in a typical high school curriculum and exposes students to advanced topics in computing, and showing how algorithms and programming come together to create real-world systems and applications. LACC participants go from learning programming fundamentals all the way to developing advanced apps. The program is organized as a set of modules, each with a lecture and hands-on software laboratory.
