  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science Attend all the sessions Be able to make an informed decision Know what you’re getting into Please follow the schedule on your paper - this should balance the numbers in each session
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science AAHS was the third of the academies to open. The first was MAST, followed by High Tech. The two newest are Communications and Bio Tech which opened in 2005.
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science You can see the academies are spread across the county from The Marine Academy of Science & Technology at Sandy Hook to High Technology High School located in Lincroft to Communications in Wall. The Academy of Allied Health and Science located here in Neptune opened its doors in 1996. We will talk more about Allied in a few minutes. The newest academy is BioTechnology High School, which moved into its new building in Freehold in 2006.
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science AAHS was the third of the academies to open. The first was MAST, followed by High Tech. The two newest are Communications and Bio Tech which opened this fall.
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science a. Who comes to the academies ; i. Students come from all over the county, all 53 sending districts ii. Students come for a variety of reasons iii. The most successful students come because the are excited about the theme of the school iv. Career Academies admit approx. 75-80 students into their freshman classes v. As full four year high schools they have approx, 280 students b . Career Academies are different i. We are a school of choice. That creates a different mind set for students and for staff. ii. We are small learning communities and we don’t let you get lost (even if you want to). iii. 40 credits per year, 160 credits to graduate. The state only requires 120 credits. You are getting a lot of education with us. iv. We don’t rank our students. We have found it hurts student to impose a bell curve over a small select group. v. All courses are academically rigorous taught at what would be considered at least an Honors level at a regular high school vi. Thematic focus supported by unique courses, thematic integration across the curriculum, and partnerships vii. Close partner ships with industry and higher education help ensure that the education we provide remains relevant to your long term educational and career goals. viii. Partners provide guest speakers, sites for field based experiences, research advisors, and opportunities to earn college credits, etc. ix. All the academies teach on some variation of the block schedule, meaning that class periods are longer but may meet for only half the year or every other day.
  • Information Session Academy of Allied Health & Science Career Academies share some things in common with full four-year high schools i. We are still a high school serving the educational needs of teenagers. We recognize that not all of the educational needs of teenagers are academic. 1. Offer Wide array of clubs 2. Students engage in Service activities 3. Host a number of Social events through out the course of the year

  • 23. And then there’s….
    • “… Now, as an outgoing senior, I see Allied as a place that has taught me a lot about who I am as an individual, enabled me to form lifelong friendships, provided me with once in a lifetime opportunities, and gave me a family that I am extremely proud to be a part of…”
  • 24. … .and
    • “ ...Most importantly, I feel that we can graduate with a feeling of fulfillment and accomplishment.”
  • 25. And finally….
    • “… It is without a doubt that we will all leave for our separate ways with a great volume of knowledge, but we will also leave with a strong sense of knowing who we each are because of our diversity. This is what I learned as a student at Allied Health…”
