About the Program
Counselors for Computing provides school counselors with information and resources they can use to guide students’ exploration of computer science and allied careers. This Immersion Week offering is for 8-12th grade counselors.
Momentum for computer science education is growing, fast! Everyone from your students’ parents, to the president, to captains of industry are encouraging schools to prepare more –and more kinds of– students for careers in computing. New courses are making their way into US schools and in more than half the states, they count as math or science credit toward graduation. Counselors for Computing will bring you up to speed!

Immersion Week is for multiple audiences of educators, of which Counselors for Computing is one. While Mobile CSP teachers attend the entire week, Immersion Week for counselors is a two-and-a-half day program for counselors. Counselors arrive on Sunday, July 16th and depart midday Wednesday, July 19th. If you come with teacher colleagues the program includes time for you to strategize with them about adding and recruiting for new courses in your school.

At Immersion Week
You’ll work with skilled counselor educators to learn about the computer science landscape and how to prepare students for education opportunities during and beyond high school. Funding is available to cover the cost of training, food, and shared on-campus apartment accommodations. Participants are expected to attend all 2.5 days of the workshop. View the draft agenda for more details.
Interested? Sign Up!
Once funding is finalized, rolling admission letters will be sent out based on interest form submissions. Once accepted, you will need to provide a letter from your principal, demonstrating that they will support you using what you learn at C4C @ Immersion Week during the upcoming school year. We will contact you with details for booking your travel after you’re accepted. We’ve provided shared on-campus apartment housing for counselors for Sunday night through Wednesday morning, so you’ll want to arrive on Sunday and depart Wednesday evening. You are welcome to arrive earlier or stay longer, provided you seek your own accommodations.
