Health Science

Health Science programs are designed to provide students the opportunity to explore careers in health care. This course of study will provide students with a smooth transition into postsecondary nursing, medical or allied health education, or the ability to acquire an entry level medical position in the workforce or the military. Students are exposed to general health care knowledge and skills and are then encouraged to pursue a more in depth study in the career area they are interested in through the appropriate career pathway. Georgia HOSA​ is offered through the health care programs and is a co-curricular component that complements classroom experiences, along with work-based learning opportunities. Employment in the health care industry will provide students with a financially stable and rewarding career of service to others. Having a chance to begin this quest while still in middle or high school is a wonderful way for student to prepare for their future.
