    Academy of Health Sciences @ PGCC 

     

    After years of research, planning, and consultations, representatives of Prince George's County Public Schools and Prince George's Community College opened Maryland's first Middle College High School in Largo, MD. Academy of Health Sciences at Prince George's Community College focuses on preparing students to enter a college program in the Health Sciences field. The students at the Academy of Health Sciences will receive by the end of their fourth year, a high school diploma and an Associate Degree in General Studies, in the Health Sciences. 

    In July 2011, the first class of students, 100 incoming ninth-graders, arrived for a three week summer bridge program. Today, students are thriving and completing a rigorous curriculum to address Prince George's County need to build a qualified healthcare workforce. A class was added each year until the academy reached full enrollment, roughly 400 students in grades 9-12.

    All Prince George’s County students are eligible to apply. For more information on the application process, contact your child's professional school counselor.
