Cyber Security Academy Overview
Winter Haven High School's Cyber Security Academy is being created to inspire high school students toward careers in cyber security or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future. Cyber security is perhaps the top national security concern in our world today. In addition to the needs of federal, state and local government, practically all industries are facing this threat. The biggest challenge in achieving cyber security is not technological – it is finding enough technically educated people – the human component. There is a serious shortage of U.S. citizens graduating with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and mathematics-computer science is the discipline with the largest projected shortfalls. This program provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on, practical knowledge that prepares them for post-secondary education and jobs in the STEM career fields.
