Computer Science Department

The goal of the Department of Computer Science at Jesuit College Preparatory School is to educate students in fundamental computing ideas that move beyond specific programs and technologies with a vision of developing young men who desire and are prepared for continued learning throughout their lifetime. Our curriculum is incorporated into a larger college preparatory program, educating the whole person in the Jesuit tradition. It pushes students to move beyond seeing themselves as users of technology to the MAGIS—the more—to an understanding that they have the capacity to be creators of technology, which can be used to solve problems and face challenges in a rapidly changing world. Through the Computer Science program, students gain experience in:

  • general problem solving skills
  • problem abstraction and decomposition
  • the creation of correct and efficient algorithms
  • utilizing contemporary programming languages to solve real world problems
