CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards

All of the main courses offered in the CodeHS 6-12 pathway are aligned to or support the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) K-12 Computer Science Standards. Note that the AP CS courses align to the College Board Frameworks, but also support the vision of the CSTA K-12 standards.

The CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards delineate a core set of learning objectives designed to provide the foundation for a complete computer science curriculum as computer science and the technologies it enables rest at the heart of our economy and the way we live our lives.

Through curriculum supported by the CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards, students can learn new approaches to problem solving with computational thinking. States, districts, and organizations can use the CSTA K-12 Computer Science Standards as the primary set of learning objectives or as a framework to build their own computer science pathways and sets of standards.
