Cyber Science Program

Loyola Blakefield

Project Name
Cyber Science program

Towson, Maryland

The Edward St. John Foundation was the first of four pillars of support for the Cyber Science program at Loyola Blakefield. The program provides students with industry-caliber skills required by today’s fastest growing employers and offers them the most advanced opportunities to apply those skills in the classroom. Students have the opportunity to test drive their future careers and understand (in high school) the long-term meaning of their college selection and major life choices.

“With the support of the foundation we have been able to expand our programmatic offerings to a greater number of students and begin instruction in our 8th grade. There are now 125 students involved with the initiative, roughly 10% of our student body. The foundation’s passion for supporting education matched our students passion for this subject area. In today’s digital economy it is imperative that we give our youth a solid foundation on what cyber is and how it works. The majority of the careers now and in the foreseeable future will require a digital background. The support of the Edward St. John foundation has been critical in allowing Loyola’s CSI to reach more students and helping to ensure a safer digital world for all of us. We are now seeing this program duplicated not only in the US, but internationally!”
