well... I'm currently working as a sysadmin, and, even I haven't studied to be a sysadmin, what I've done is to practice a lot...
I currently maintain a server with my home computer, which I personally installed, configured and I usually play around with it (learning a lot in the process).
It may be a slow procedure, but I was working as a programmer, and 2 years later (since I started playing with my home computer as a server), I got this great job that now I'm at...
The thing is, you may not have the possibility to study at school, but you can learn for your own, there's the internet, and your own capabilities to get it done, it's just a matter of really wanting (and liking) it
I hope you're not asking for websites that would try to get you certifications without education, because then you would (or should) stay unemployed.
However, if you're looking for education, which will give you skills as well as the potential to earn certifications, New Horizons is all over the US. Since you didn't specify your location, and I'm in the US, I can only give you an answer based on my experience. They also have online classes, but if you're very unfamiliar with something technical, actual classes can be preferable. Many people have different learning styles - again, I'm answering from my own experience.
Cisco also has Cisco Academy, which can get you education and certification in networks and get you started on security. I don't know if that's a US-only program; I know they do it with community and technical colleges here.
Also - what are you looking for? You say "security" and "network", and then say "server admin." Do you want to be a jack-of-all-trades and do it all? There's kind of two paths there with overlap: either a consultant or small-medium business IT guy.
You can also do it the hard way - utilize your existing skills to get into a company and learn on-the-job. That's how I did it - I earned my A+ on my own, got an SMB support job, and then got a job with a consulting firm that exposed me to a lot of growth opportunities.
