Introduction to Java

3-Week Camp | Ages 14-18

In Introduction to Java, the first course of our AP CS Prep track, students build a foundation in programming using Java. They’ll learn to work with variables, data types, arrays, loops, conditional logic, methods, and more, all while building engaging programs in our project-focused curriculum. The fundamental programming skills they’ll learn in this course will help them to succeed in a traditional AP Computer Science A course. After completing this course, students are ready to tackle Object-Oriented Programming (another essential skill for the AP CS A exam) in Intermediate Java, the next course in the AP CS Prep track.

Intermediate Java

In Intermediate Java, the final course of our AP CS Prep track, students learn the fundamental principles of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP). They’ll learn how to model real-world data using OOP concepts like encapsulation, inheritance, composition, and polymorphism. While this course focuses on OOP in the Java programming language, most ideas are transferrable to any mainstream object-oriented language. After completing this course, students will be well-prepared to enter a traditional AP Computer Science A course and hit the ground running!
