PARENTS AND STUDENTS

Dear Applicant:

The LBJ Early College Career Launch Health Sciences Program is marketed to rising ninth-grade students interested in a career in the health care industry. Our program provides students the opportunities to explore careers in the health and science through partnerships with Austin Community College, and Seton Healthcare Family. This unique program allows students to earn their high school diploma and an Associate degree tuition free.

 

Learning that targets the future will take place in our modern classrooms and specially- designed laboratories that mirror the work environment. Opportunities to participate in college visits, Industry visits, mentoring, job shadowing, summer health camps and internship experiences.

 

Students interested in attending must complete an enrollment application that includes self-reported interests/activities, essays and letters of recommendation.
