Python is our default language, but students will be free to use any language they like to solve programming challenges we give them.

There is no focus on specific language in this program. Students will have the freedom to choose which language they would like to use to solve a challenge.
Students will be asked to leave only if they attend the program without turning in any work and demonstrate that they are only interested in playing computer games. They need to work on programming on the days when they are here.
No prior experience required for this program.
We do not have a cap for how many people we will accept yet. And everyone is welcome to join at any time during the program.
You can equate this to a regular AP class, which in normal classroom setting would meet for about 5 hours a week excluding hours spent studying at home. For us, we would expect the students to put in about 3 to 4 hours a week at home on their own and coming in to work with other students for 3 hours on Saturdays.
There is no direct instructor but the curriculum will be written by Kai Drumm, a 42 staff member and Sangita Nath, a Code for fun staff member. In 2010 Kai won an award for receiving the highest number of 5s on AP exams among female students in Texas. 

Last year, 31 HackHighSchool students prepared and took the AP CSP exam and got a score 4 and above.
Yes, we will make an effort to connect groups of people who live in the same area with each other.
No. It is a combination of challenges and face-to-face meetups.
No you will not get any college credit or high school units. You can get AP credits if you choose to register and take the AP CSP and/or AP CSA exams with College Board.
If you want to take the APCSP Option with us, contact our Program Director, HackHighSchool(sangita@codeforfun.com)

You will be enrolled in our APCSP Option at Hack High School.
Important note: The APCSP Option @ Hack High School (H2S) requires a serious commitment to show up at the first semester of H2S coding course happening on September the 14th, 2019 and to keep coming and showing positive attitude and willingness to learn until the end of the second semester in order to be well prepared for the APSCP exam.

Each Hack High School student taking the APCSP Option that will not commit to those requirements will not be well prepared to the APSCP exam.
The program is divided into two semesters. The First Semester is from September 14, 2019 through December 14, 2019 and the Second Semester is from January 11, 2019 through May 23, 2019. Student may attend the first or all two semester. A student need to register for every semester. We meet once a week every Saturday from 1pm to 4:00pm. The pick-up for the students are between 3:30pm to 4:00pm.
Yes, Saturday meetups are mandatory. This is when students will come together to work on their projects, ask questions, present their projects/learning, review and provide feedback.
