While Huntsville City Schools' goal is to prepare students to be college and career ready, the cybersecurity program offers an even greater head start. A number of participants have assumed part-time after-school jobs with local high-tech companies, doing hands-on work in cybersecurity.
The program begins as an introductory course in the seventh grade, with the option for students to continue their studies in a four-year continuum from grades 9-12.
This program is offered in partnership with U.S. Army Cyber Command. Visit Cybersecurity
