NuPaths, cofounded by Harrisburg University, together with Cumberland Valley School District are excited to announce their first-ever curricular partnership program – Technical and Security Assistant.
This partnership program, which successfully filled all available seats and created a waitlist during its first semester at CV, prepares high school students from Cumberland Valley for entry level careers in IT Support and Cyber Security. The program, which was also offered to students in neighboring districts, proudly welcomes a student from Carlisle Area School District into the classroom alongside CV seniors.
“We are thrilled to partner with Cumberland Valley School District to provide students with a program focused on in-demand careers in information technology,” said Harrisburg University President Dr. Eric Darr. “NuPaths helps students develop skill sets that employers are searching for, especially when it relates to helpdesk, software testing and IT security operation center positions. We hope other school districts follow the lead of Cumberland Valley School District and also partner with NuPaths to provide a career-focused IT development program for their students.”
This workforce development program provides an opportunity for high school students to earn up to six industry certifications while simultaneously earning high school elective credits and college credits. Upon successful completion of this program, students will have marketable and employable skills.
