HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) – There’s a new state-of-the-art facility in Cummings Research Park. It’s called The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering (ASCTE)! This is a public, residential magnet high school, open to students across Alabama.
“This has been the culmination of years of work, really from the vision of just some key stakeholders and advocates and donations from our industry partners,” said President Matt Massey. “It’s just incredible to be able to offer this experience for Alabama students that is going to be a national model.”
The new campus is modern, innovative, and open. Some students believe it looks and feels like a research facility. This project has been years in the making, and it’s all coming together.
On August 20, 100 high schoolers from across the state will move into their dorm rooms on campus. Classes begin on August 24 for all 250 students. Last year, many of these young adults were taking classes at ASCTE’s temporary building at Oakwood University.
