High School Programs


  • By 2018, 1.4 million “computing” jobs will be available in the U.S., but it's estimated only 400,000 graduates will have the appropriate degrees for those jobs.

    Cerner invests in the education of tomorrow’s leaders. We believe in real-world student learning that prepares them for the dynamic and always-changing 21st century workforce.

  • Northland CAPS: Connecting students to professional and innovative learning opportunities

    In Fall 2013, the inaugural class of the Northland Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) Computing and Technology strand showed up for their first day of class…at Cerner! Leveraging the success of our partner, Blue Valley CAPS, Cerner and other local companies are partnering with six school districts in Kansas City’s Northland to provide junior and senior high school students with relevant, hands-on, industry-driven learning outside the traditional classroom. Cerner hosts the Computing and Technology class at our offices, where students can engage in real project work supporting several area businesses.
