An information session for Hunterdon County Vocational School District’s (HCVSD) Biomedical Sciences Academy is scheduled for Thursday, January 14th at 6:00 P.M. at North Hunterdon High School’s auditorium.
The Academy is a full-time, four-year high school operated through a partnership between HCVSD and North Hunterdon High School. The Academy itself is located within North Hunterdon, and Academy students complete their general academic courses and requirements at the high school. It is anticipated that students will also participate in clubs, sports, and any other extracurricular activities at North Hunterdon.
During their time at the Academy, students will be exposed to more than 97 different careers in the biomedical field, including human medicine, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and public health while fostering critical thinking skills and creativity. Students will study Project Lead the Way’s curriculum as well as coursework provided by Rutgers University School of Health Related Professionals (RU SHRP). RU SHRP coursework involves actual college courses taught by the Academy’s teacher, who is also an approved adjunct instructor with Rutgers University. Students earn college credits while participating in a nationally recognized program that is actively recruited by college admissions representatives.
The Academy is available to all incoming freshmen throughout Hunterdon County. Applications are due by March 1st, and the interest session will provide the opportunity to answer all questions and disseminate any necessary information.
