GCPS, Mercer, FBI collaborate for cybersecurity program

Paul Duke STEM High School students will be able to participate in a cyber security dual enrollment program starting during the 2019-20 school year thanks to a partnership between Mercer University, Gwinnett County Public Schools and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Atlanta Division.

The program includes courses led by faculty members in Mercer University’s College of Professional Advancement with special presentations by FBI agents. Classes are held each Friday on Mercer’s Cecil B. Day Graduate and Professional Campus in Atlanta. The program is one of four in the nation, with others located in Arlington, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Weston, Florida.
