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.”
