WELCOME TO PARK MEDICAL ACADEMY!
The non-academic admissions program at Park Medical Academy is designed as an inquiry and project-based exploratory model in health sciences providing students with the opportunity to experience various aspects of the medical field, including but not limited to forensics, medical technology, pharmaceutical, nursing, and clinical studies, which will serve as a catalyst for theme-based opportunities aligned with programs at the high school level.
As part of the Focus Choice Schools network, the program prepares students to work in diverse health care fields while also preparing them to become proficient graduates of the Baton Rouge General Medical System in a discipline outlined in the agreement. A partnership with the Baton Rouge General Medical System creates a strong foundation and an important link to the health care industry while helping students to develop and apply leadership, social, civic, and health care skills in a professional setting. It is also important for the district and school to explore the diverse and changing health care system of delivery to promote interest at the elementary level and to build capacity during the process.
The agreement with the Baton Rouge General Medical System is divided into two phases: the first phase will begin with a PK-6 grade phase-in approach which will provide a year of planning for the district and the medical center to adjust and redefine the instructional process to meet the needs of students as they matriculate to high school.
Students have access to the wide multitude of resources that the hospital offers that provides students with standard-based resources necessary to be successful in the medical field and to become work-force ready.
It continues to be an honor and a privilege for us to have the opportunity to serve and educate your children at the NEW Park Medical Academy. On behalf of our exceptional faculty and staff, I extend our best wishes to you for a successful school year.
This year, we are extremely excited about our partnerships with the Baton Rouge General Medical System. This model is designed as an inquiry and project-based exploratory model in health sciences providing students with the opportunity to experience various aspects of the medical field. The program will serve as a catalyst for theme-based opportunities aligned with programs at the high school level.
This partnership with Baton Rouge General Medical System, will create a strong foundation and an important link to the healthcare industry while helping students develop and apply leadership, social, civic, and healthcare skills in a professional setting.
