Academy of BioMedical

Here is what students are saying about the BioMedical Academy here at University High School

About the Academy: The program is a sequence of scaffolding courses, all aligned with appropriate national learning standards, which follows a proven hands-on, project-based, real-world problem-solving approach to learning. Students explore the concepts of human medicine and are introduced to topics such as forensics, physiology, genetics, microbiology, and infectious disease. Through activities, like dissections, students examine the processes, structures, and interactions of the human body, as well as real-world case studies that allow them to collaboratively problem solve various medical situations.

Academy & Scholarship Opportunities:

Students are provided scholarship opportunities from the Academy of Finance Advisory Board members.  Members of the board work for finance companies, colleges/universities, and local businesses.

The academy is also a Bright Futures Scholarship Program that offers scholarships for students who maintain certain grade point average, volunteer hours, and test scores.  For more information regarding Bright Futures please click the following link below:
