If you want to be ahead of the rest of the kids your age, you want to challenge yourself, and you want to learn the skills to be successful in a world dominated by technology, then Lakewood High School's Center for Advanced Technologies, or the CAT program, is the right school for you.
Not only do we offer honors and AP courses in various subjects, such as AP calculus (AB and BC) and AP chemistry, we have lots of technology centered classes. For those students that want to pursue engineering, our program has one of the best robotics classes in the state of Florida. You get to learn all about mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and even create the code to tell the robots you make what to do.
We also have programming classes, which are required in the CAT curriculum. CAT students are provided with their own windows tablets to help them with their schoolwork, loaded with programming tools. As a freshman you get your Microsoft office certifications. In sophomore year you take the fundamentals of programming, and get your certification for that. After that year, you choose what class you are interested in. Do you want to take AP computer science, or cyber security? Some people take both! In senior year, we have a very special class for those who have the prerequisite classes. Our school has four Oculus Rifts at our disposal, and have a class all about developing games to work with the device. There aren't many high schools that can say the same.
The students who want to attend Lakewood should have a passion for all of these. Lakewood is a school with an emphasis on technology, and it will give the people who want to pursue a career in this area the jump start they need.
