Augusta Prep Middle School team wins Capture the Flag cyber tournament

Two Augusta Prep's Middle School cyber teams finished first and fifth in the very competitive AFCEA TechNet Augusta Capture the Flag event on Aug. 16 at the Georgia Cyber Innovation & Training Center. 
For the second year in a row, Augusta Prep literally captured the flag and brought it back to campus. Augusta Prep also had two Upper School teams competing in the event, which featured many schools from all over the Augusta area.

According to, topics covered for this event included Binary Exploitation, Reverse Engineering, Web Exploitation, Cryptography, Forensics, and Security. 

Construction continues on Augusta Prep's one-of-a-kind in the Augusta community STEM building, the Giles Institute, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year. Groundbreaking for this future-facing science and engineering facility started in January, and the 19,000-square-foot Giles Institute will be the arena in which Augusta Prep students sharpen their skills for college and the workplace (cyber, design thinking, prototyping, problem solving, programming, and presenting their novel concepts and innovative creations). The Giles Institute is expected to open for classes in January 2024.
