Default Microsoft Academy in Highschool

I got accepted to the Microsoft IT Academy! And I want to know if this will help me out in life. I'm taking the programming courses and it's over a 3 year term. The first year I will be learning 2559 Intro to Visual Basics.NET. The second, 2373 Programming with Microsoft Visual Studio.NET and 2310 Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Web Applications. The third and last year will be 2389 Programming with Microsoft ADO.NET.

Well, first of all I have no clue what all that is so if anyone wants to explain it in simple words or has a site I can read about it, that would be greatly appreciated.

After I complete the 3 years I will recieve a certificate from Microsoft. And the student with the highest grades is directly sent to Microsoft for a possible job/career.

I just would like to know your thoughts on this program, all opinions are welcomed.

Thanks

That's cool. I don't think our school does that. I am the same age as you. I would like to do that.....

I'm gonna be a junior and I'm taking a 2 year class with 4 periods a day, giving me the following benefits:

A+ Certification (If I pass the test)
Technical Endorsement on my diploma
and 3.1 or 3.3 weighting on my average

4 periods a day for 2 years doing everything related with computers.

As for Marx, yes it probally is the school day and its free.
Ussually these classes open up for you in 10th or 11th grade though, since you'll need more free periods to take them.
