A team of high school students from East Providence Career & Technical Center, recently concluded an exceptional round of competition in the eighth season of CyberPatriot – the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. Established by the Air Force Association, the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program was created to excite, educate, and motivate students toward careers in cyber security and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.
CyberPatriot’s core program – the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition – challenges teams of two to six students across the United States and Canada, and from Department of Defense schools abroad, to find and resolve cybersecurity vulnerabilities in simulated environments. The CyberPatriot field is divided into three divisions – the Open Division, the All Service Division, and the Middle School Division.
The Cynatics, a team from the East Providence and Career Center participated in the CyberPatriot Competition. They started their journey in October by putting many hours in after school to practice. They competed in two qualifying rounds and placed 4th in the State for Round 1, and placed 3rd in the State during Round 2. Their work placed them in the Gold Division for the State Competition. They competed in the State Round on January 31 and placed 3rd in the State which qualified them to move onto the Northeast Regional Rounds on January 20.
Led by Mrs. Piros the team’s Coach and Mr. Gawel, the team’s Mentor, the team of students from East Providence Career & Technical Matt Azevedo, Corey Motta, Jeff Pereira, Alex Buteau, Andrew Holstein, and Edward Crevier excelled in the CyberPatriot VIII qualifying rounds, demonstrating teamwork, critical thinking skills, and technical knowledge key to a successful career in cybersecurity. The team’s performance earned it a spot in the Northeast Regional Open Division Round held February 19-21, during which they outscored other teams to place 8th in the Open Division’s Northeast Region.
In all, 3,379 teams registered to compete in CyberPatriot VIII.
The East Providence Career and Technical Center serves students from East Providence, Barrington, and Bristol/Warren. In addition, students from outside the region are eligible to apply to the EPCTC if their program of choice is not offered at their regional career and technical center.
In an effort to offer all students a safe, nurturing, and fun-learning environment, we make every effort to accept students that have displayed the academic ability and level of maturity required to succeed both in school and in the world of work.
An Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) will be designed to meet the individual needs and goals of each student.

The ultimate goal is to make all post secondary options available to all students. These options may include, but are not limited to:
- 4 year college
- Community college
- Technical/Trade school
