Academy of Health Sciences

The Academy of Health Sciences, located at both Coolidge HS and Eastern HS, develops a pipeline of students prepared to pursue health-related degrees and professions in one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. The Project Lead the Way Biomedical Science curriculum provides students with activities like practicing suturing and constructing body structures from clay. The program empowers students to build knowledge and skills in biomedical science, as well as in-demand, transportable skills like problem solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, and collaboration. Work-based learning includes internships with Georgetown MedStar Hospital, Children’s National Medical Center, and the Emergency Preparedness Program.
