About the Program

Disruptive technology! Big data! Digital transformation!
Learn what these buzzwords mean and how they apply to the world of cloud computing in this new skills center program.

Cloud computing skills are in high demand, especially as the need to be digitally fluent increases and the world fluctuates between working in-person or from home. Cloud services create a virtual environment where you can save, access, and manage data, which ensures data security and safety, and saves time, money, and resources. Most businesses today have moved to a virtual form of data because it is very easy to manage and process.

Cloud Academy lays the foundation with cloud concepts, core services, security, architecture, pricing, and support skills. You will then be prepared to advance to intermediate level course work in several areas of focus, including developing, architecting, operations, machine learning, and data analytics.

This Academy program will help you prepare for industry certification exams, making you highly employable in a growing field. Because you will participate in this program for 2.5 hours per day, you will advance through the curriculum at a rapid pace and level of understanding, preparing you for the speed at which the tech industry operates.

This program fulfills the Computer Science requirement for high school graduation.
