    Program Description

    The RHS Computer Science Pathway is a series of courses that focuses on building critical thinking, problem solving, and preparing students for high paying, high demand jobs in the competitive technology field.  Students will work their way up to Technology Innovation, the capstone, where they will create and develop a semester long project (an application or software product) with the guidance of industry mentors.
