Butler HS opens Academy of Health SciencesB

By Leah Schmalz

Last Thursday, during freshman orientation, Butler High School held an open house for the inaugural year of its Academy of Health Science.

“We are one of two Health Science Academies through National Academic Foundation

in the state of North Carolina so we’re really excited,” said Ann Marie Ferguson, Assistant Principal of Instruction and the administrator of the academy.

At the open house, students had the opportunity to experience some of the experiments and activities that will

be part of their regular academy classes. During the school year, students will follow a curriculum that prepares them for paid internships in health sciences by junior year.

“Right now about 50 percent of kids that have signed up for courses in the academy are looking into veterinary medicine,” said Ferguson. “We’re hoping to get some internships with vets in the area.”

The students also will take college level courses for credit by junior year. Each Monday students will hear from guest speakers or take field trips.

This year there were no restrictions in place to sign up for the academy. In following years, there will be a 100-student cap on the program. Ferguson said the school will see how the first year goes before determining how to set the cap or if there is a need for more teachers.
