Mercy Schools Distinguished for Closing the Gender Gap in Computer Sciences

Mercy Education is proud to announce that 15 Mercy schools have earned AP Computer Science Female Diversity Awards for the 2019-2020 school year.

Three schools – Assumption High School (Louisville, KY), Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School (Gwynedd Valley, PA) and Saint Mary Academy – Bay View (Riverside, RI) – have earned two College Board AP Computer Science Female Diversity Awards for achieving high female representation in AP Computer Science A (CSA) and AP Computer Science Principles (CSP) courses.

Only 56 of the 20,000 institutions that offer AP courses earned this double distinction for closing the gender gap in both AP computer science courses.

Twelve Mercy schools earned one AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award:

The AP Computer Science Female Diversity Award honors schools who reached 50 percent or higher female representation in either of the two AP computer science courses in 2020, or whose percentage of female examinees met or exceeded that of the school’s female population in 2020.
