About the Program

Classes for High School Students

The Cyber Technologies Academy (CTA) is an entry-level program for high school students intrigued by computer science and cybersecurity. Offering fun, interactive lessons and exercises, the CTA can be your first step toward becoming part of the next generation of cybersecurity experts. Plan to participate in our next CTA session. You'll learn from our cybersecurity professionals, meet other students with similar interests, and supplement your college applications with an impressive technical skill set. Learn more about the program and the classes being offered.

Training and Resources for Teachers

A second component of the CTA is aimed at teachers interested in supplementing an existing computer science curriculum. Join us for free summer training classes and gain knowledge and resources you can use at home or in the classroom. If you are a teacher or school administrator and want to become involved with the CTA or take our summer training classes, email us at cta@sandia.gov. Please include your name, school, class(es) of interest, and some background information (such as on existing cyber classes at your school). Learn more about the program and the classes being offered.
