Health Career Academy

OUR MISSION

OUR_MISSION iconOUR MISSIONtitle

The mission of the Sequoia Health Careers Academy is to provide a rigorous, equitable and interdisciplinary academic program that prepares students for college level study in healthcare fields or a career in health care upon graduation. Our program achieves this mission by fostering a personalized learning community and building strong partnerships with the health care industry, the community, and institutes of higher education.

The Sequoia Health Careers Academy Program is a new edition to Sequoia's award-winning academic lineup. HCA students in 10th through 12th grade learn and grow in a small learning community consisting of dedicated peers and caring, invested teachers.

  • Students take up to four classes in the HCA: Science, English, Social Studies, and Career Tech.
  • HCA teachers often 'loop' with their students by moving up grade levels with them; our teachers know our students well, and vice versa.
  • HCA teachers meet weekly to discuss student progress. These meetings, which often include the students themselves, aim to identify student needs and access appropriate sources of support.
  • HCA class sizes are small: an average of 25 students. Small class sizes increase personalization and learning.
