Technical Core Course Sequence

All students at Millikan take A-G courses and have the option to take any AP Classes offered.  We encourage SEGA students to take AP Classes in subjects that they enjoy and are strong in, as we know these are probably the areas they will pursue further in college. 

The core courses that are offered in the SEGA Pathway focus on Computer Science related principles through the study of Game Design and Development and Software Engineering.  Students will learn Object-Oriented Languages such as Javascript, Construct3, Unity (C#), and will have the Opportunity to learn R in Intro to Data Science.  They will also gain exposure to HTML, CSS and Python as well. 

The following courses are the Core Courses that they will take during their four years at Millikan:

Level 1: Game Design

Level 2: Game Development

Level 3: SEGA Capstone

While using Video Games as a way to teach them these principles, we also examine how computer science is used in most other professions. We will assist students in exploring other career options, through college, other training or how to get a job right out of high school.
