Monticello High School Health and Medical Science Academy
The Monticello High School Health and Medical Science Academy is a program designed to provide opportunities to students interested in the health or medical science fields to get a first hand look at what the fields entail.
After teachers, administrators, and school board members toured the University of Virginia's Medical School facilities, they became interested in putting together a program for Albemarle County students to start their explorations before reaching college. After months of planning, the Academy began accepting applications around January 2012 for the 2012-13 school year. With an opening class of 23 students, the Academy was up and running in August of 2012.
