    OVERVIEW
     
    Our mission is to provide a challenging and rigorous college preparatory program with enrichment opportunities in the area of applied science and health professions.
     

    The theme, Health Science Academy, was developed through collaboration among our students, parents, and faculty.  One of the strengths of this theme is the variety of careers associated with applied science and health professions.
