    About the Program:

    The Center for Computer Studies at Carl Hayden Community High School features a variety of computer courses, most of which are not available at any other district school. Computer facilities and equipment provide business and science applications, which are augmented by a strong academic curriculum in both fundamental and advanced computer language and theory.

    As one of the oldest magnet programs in Phoenix Union High Schools District we have seen huge changes in the way students use computer technology. We have grown with the demands and are continuing to offer courses that provide Carl Hayden students with exciting and rich learning opportunities.

    Our philosophy is to find avenues of technology and innovation and bring it to the Carl Hayden community.

    We have had many outstanding students and continue to have them every year. Our students drive us forward. It’s what makes us better as teachers.
