White House recognizes Project Lead The Way

Middleburg Academy serves as the region's only independent day school that partners with Project Lead the Way

We’re excited to share that the White House recognized PLTW as a partner in the CS for All initiative, launched by the President earlier this year to empower all American students from kindergarten through high school to learn computer science. This recognition highlights our efforts to increase access to computer science education for students and teachers across the country.  

Additionally, we’re thrilled to announce our participation as a member of the CSforAll Consortium. This national organization was formed in response to the growing computer science education community, the broadly bipartisan support for computer science, and the President’s goal to provide every student with access to computer science education. 

We want to thank you for the continued commitment you have made to empower your students with opportunities to develop in-demand skills through computer science. As part of our ongoing combined efforts, we are:

  • Increasing the number of students with access to computer science by training more than 13,500 K-12 teachers in PLTW computer science courses this year
  • Engaging K-12 students in hands-on activities, projects, and problems that allow them to solve real-world challenges
  • Preparing students for long-term success and encouraging them to pursue CS degrees and careers through opportunities like AP + PLTW student recognition

Together, we’re making a difference in providing computer science education to more K-12 students across the U.S.
