Agreed... we only had BASIC and PERL when I was in high school (PERL being an 'accelerated / AP course at that time.) The offerings your school has (and my former one does, now) are much more valuable to you, today. Don't get me wrong, both BASIC and PERL got me thinking in terms of programmatical syntaxes, etc, and PERL still comes in handy, now and then. But with the world on the web as much as it is, now, you'll find a LOT of use, in security, for knowledge from those courses you have available.
Best of luck, and go for it!
