ACSL.org provides information about the American Computer Science League (ACSL), an organization dedicated to promoting computer science education and competition among students. The website offers various resources, including programming problems, tutorials, and contest archives, to assist students and teachers in enhancing their computer science skills.
The ACSL.org emphasizes the importance of computer science education in today's digital age and aims to inspire students to pursue careers in this field. It provides a platform for students to participate in coding competitions and challenges that test their problem-solving abilities and programming knowledge.
ACSL.org serves as a hub for accessing past contest problems and solutions, allowing students to practice and improve their skills. Additionally, the website offers tutorials and lessons on various computer science topics, ensuring that students have the necessary resources to learn and excel in the subject.
ACSL has five divisions: Senior, Intermediate, Junior, Classroom, and Elementary, providing an appropriate challenge for students of varying ages and abilities. We encourage schools and organizations to join more than one division, so that students can participate in the division best matching their ability.
Contest topics are similar across divisions but vary in levels of detail and difficulty.
Within a division, a school forms one or more teams. Each team can have a maximum of 12 students. A school can choose to compete in the 5-score or 3-score division: That is, the team score for each contest is the sum of the top 5 (or 3) students scores in that contest. A school can register multiple teams per division. This allows more students to have their scores counted towards a team score and also allows friendly competition within a school.
The cost to register a team in a division (except the Elementary Division) is $150. Each additional team in that division is $75. For the Elementary Division the costs are $100 and $50. Advisors can register additional teams after the initial registration form has been completed. A student may only participate as a member of a single team. After Contest #1, a student cannot change teams. High-scoring students in all divisions will be invited to an end-of-year online Finals competition.
We offer training in the following topics for all levels. While ACSL.org primarily focuses on competitions, we offer training for the contestants.
