CISCO Cyber Operations (Class of 2022)

Class of 2021 Computer Science and CISCO Networking programs will continue for the class of 2021. (programs that start at CCCTC in January 2020) 

Class of 2022   Due to the large volume of applications, for the class of 2022, Computer Science will be moving to the home high schools.  Students who applied already will be notified that that program is moving.  CCCTC is replacing the Computer Science program currently at CCCTC with the CISCO Cyber Operations program (the software side of cybersecurity).  Our online application has changed to reflect this.  See summary of the new program and a complete description of the topics below.
