The launch of AP Computer Science Principles was the largest course launch in AP’s 60-year history. More than 2,500 schools offered the course and more than 50,000 students took the AP CSP end-of-course exam in May 2017.

The course, which focuses on multidisciplinary, real-life applications, is designed to attract and engage students who are traditionally underrepresented in the field and to make computer science accessible to all.
