NPHS to open Academy of Computer Science and Design
High School students interested in technology will have more choices and opportunities next school year. North Platte High School will be implementing the NPHS Academy of Computer Science and Digital Design. The purpose of the academy is to give career-ready learning experiences to students interested in pursuing a career in a technology-related field, or gaining high-demand skills that would make them marketable in any career choice.
The Academy of Computer Science and Digital Design will offer five different programs of study for students to choose from. Students may take as many different programs as they would like. The five programs of study are:
1. Data Science
2. Digital Design
3. Information Technology
4. Web Design
5. Web Development
This is an exciting time for students who are interested in technology, or even for students who would like to explore computer science to see if they like it. All of the classes that will be offered are compliant with the Nebraska Department of Education and meet or exceed state standards. The programs are being developed to give students real world opportunities and experiences outside of the classroom.
