Enrolling in Fall of 2016
Are you interested in a career in the healthcare field? Prepare to care at the CCBC Health Academy. The CCBC Health Academy is for high school students in grades 11 through 12 at participating high schools who are interested in careers in nursing, practical nursing, radiologic technology, physical therapy, respiratory care, pharmacist, nurse anesthetist, and pre-med. Students have opportunities to explore careers in this high-demand field, receive hands-on STEM instruction from college faculty members in labs and clinical environments, and acquire skills for effective leadership. Additionally, students who devote two years of study will have the opportunity to graduate from high school with up to 28 college credits completed in CCBC's associate degree programs. Students who successfully complete all of the coursework will be prepared to continue their studies toward an associate degree in nursing or radiologic technology or a diploma in practical nursing at CCBC.
