The Academy of Cyber Security addresses a critical need in today's workforce. San Antonio is "Cyber City, USA" and the need for training for Cyber Security principals has never been greater. In this academy, students will learn the fundamentals of network security, system security, and cloud security. Students can work towards certifications in CCENT, Network+, CCNA, Security+, as well as Microsoft Office and IC3. Students can also participate in our national award-winning CyperPatriots teams.
All BCHS students will take the standard core courses, but it is recommended that all students take English at the Pre-AP and AP level for all 4 years and all social studies courses at the Pre-AP and AP level through U.S. History. All students are encouraged to also take a senior capstone course called College Transitions. In this course, students will be walked through the process of researching and applying for college admissions, scholarships and other forms of financial aid, or exploring other post-secondary endeavors such as the military. The academy you choose will determine the sequence of business courses you will take over your 4 years at BCHS. Your counselor will work with you to ensure that you meet all graduation and academy requirements. BCHS students must complete 6 business credits prior to graduation and must be enrolled in at least one business class each year.
