Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering to break ground on student activities center

The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering (ASCTE) has continued to grow by leaps and bounds since first opening in 2018.

The Huntsville-based public charter school announced they’ll host a groundbreaking ceremony for a greatly-anticipated student activities center. The new addition, according to ASCTE, will “provide a comprehensive space that fosters not just academic excellence but also a rich tapestry of extracurricular activities.”

“This momentous occasion represents a milestone in the evolution of our school,” said ASCTE President, Matt Massey. “The Student Activities Center embodies our dedication to providing a well- rounded educational experience for our students.”

“It is not just a building; it is a hub where talent will flourish, passions will be nurtured, and friendships will be forged.”

The soon to be constructed center will offer students a 1100-seat gymnasium, purpose-built basketball and volleyball courts, a wrestling room, fully equipped locker rooms, multifunctional office spaces, a specialized band room, archery practice areas, a mezzanine, and concessions.

The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for January 26.
