Students take college level coursework at Burlington High School in computer science, including two AP options or a dual enrollment course with Middlesex Community College. Students also explore technology applications in the real-world through two additional courses in design, business, game development, drone use, or engineering.
The pathway leads to a Senior Capstone Project, with mentors from industry partners like MITRE, who meet weekly with students. Students also have the opportunity to earn industry certifications aligned with industry.
For students new to technology, we provide academic support throughout the program.
Through career exploration programs at BHS, students gain insight into their strengths and interests, research careers in computer science, and visit technology companies. Students attend workshops to help them apply for college and jobs. Students explore careers in software development, web and app development, robotics, cloud computing, data science, and artificial intelligence through virtual tours and guest speakers.
