    Well, start with maybe a year of learning general C programming. Not because you'll be writing any significant C programs, but because so much info will either be presented as C snippets or you'll be compiling/linking C modules from snippets or larger code blocks.

    Either later or concurrently, study communications protocols, most particularly TCP/IP. Also, networking protocols. Without at least a working knowledge you won't contact anything to hack.

    When you feel generally comfortable with those, look for college-level courses related to them. You're not only needing to learn to 'hack', but you'll also want to know enough that local/federal police (or worse) won't show up at your front door minutes after you begin an attack. The connections necessarily go both ways, and your location can be tracked in seconds unless you really know what you're doing as well as knowing what's being done in defense of the site.

    By the time you get to that point, you'll probably have some follow-up questions. Come back here to ask them.

    First off don't broadcast your plan. Follow Ravens advice if you intend on breaking the law. You may not find much help on this site with actual info.
