A+ is a breeze... I used to teach it! Cisco (CCNA?) is not so easy... that will require some study (I consider IOS to be a pain! lol! But I don't work with it enough.)!
Hyper-V or VMWare (or other)? If you get a VCP. or VCAP.. it is a good move!
Our high-school offered CCNA 1 through 4 and I took all of them. To get certified we would have had to take the test at the local community college though. I wish I had taken it a little more seriously though and received my certification. The teacher was teaching the class as a favour (his wife taught at the school, he taught at a college over the border in the U.S.) so while he was a good guy and knew his stuff, he didn't care if we took it too seriously. After CCNA 1, we all (the 3 of us in our split class) just found the answers online when doing the chapter tests / final. It helped to raise my grades up for scholarships going into uni, but I wish I had paid more attention and learned the material as well.
