Grow along with the Academy
Bio-Med Science Academy has expanded to included students in grades 6 through 12. Today, all students in our Lower Academy (grades 6 – 8) and our Upper Academy (grades 9 – 12) experience STEM learning within the framework of a balanced curriculum that integrates the arts, humanities and sciences.
In addition, BMSA leverages our region’s extensive scientific, medical, academic and business assets to engage students directly with practicing professionals. Our students gain exposure to a range of industries through speakers, internships, field experiences and other opportunities that prepare them for real-world living and working.
The result is an inquiry-based, individualized learning experience that positions students to succeed in any number of career fields including, perhaps, fields yet to be created. The Academy seeks to produce not just future mathematicians, engineers, doctors and scientists … but leaders in all fields.
