    Health Sciences Academy Curriculum

     
      

    The Health Sciences Academy allows students to pick a four-year high school curriculum based on a health career interest and their planned course of study for graduation. Completing these courses within the Academy will give students basic knowledge and skills needed to continue in their pursuit of a career in the health field.  The curriculum that is followed by our students prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills for maintenance of health, prevention of illness, and care of the ill.

     
    Required Courses for Health Sciences Academy Students:
     
     The students in the Health Sciences Academy are allowed the freedom to select courses that will benefit the most as an individual and allow for individualized planning based on future career goals.
