Champlain Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity Academy

Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity

Now being offered virtually for Summer 2021

July 11–24, 2021


Given the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation, Champlain College has decided to transition the Academy to a virtual format for 2021. This synchronous virtual program will be taught by the same faculty and yield the same robust learning outcomes as our residential program. Anyone who has already registered for the residential program will be offered the opportunity to transition their registration to our virtual program or receive a full refund.

What is The DFCS Academy?

The DFCS Academy is a two-week-long, in-depth learning experience, offered in a synchronous virtual format. High school students who are excited to pursue a career in digital forensics and cybersecurity can dive into a digital forensic lab experience while meeting new friends and building connections with industry experts.

What Do Students Do?

Students will get hands-on learning experience from veterans of the cybersecurity industry, covering a wide breadth of digital forensics and cybersecurity, from investigating digital crimes to constructing and safeguarding networks. DFCS academy students will also get to work together to solve real digital forensics problems faced by law enforcement agencies all over America.

Why Attend?

At the DFCS, students will be able to gain real, practical skills in cybersecurity. They will learn how to defend against cyberattacks, investigate digital crimes, and work both independently and as part of a team. The experience they gain here will prepare them for both college life and their future careers in cybersecurity. Apply soon, as space is limited!
