Seven Greenwood 50 students passed the Oracle Certified Associate (OCA) Java SE 8 Programmer I exam in 2019. The OCA exam is designed for people with technical backgrounds who have been working in a professional capacity.
It is an impressive accomplishment that these students passed the OCA exam without professional experience. Emerald High School is an Institutional Member of Oracle Academy.
The students participated in a dual enrollment program offered through CTE courses from G. Frank Russell Technology Center and Piedmont Technical College. They took Introduction to Java Programming (CPT 236) and Advanced Java Programming (CPT 237).
