NAF’s Academy of Health Sciences (AOHS) addresses the critical
    achievement gap in STEM fields by developing a pipeline of
    students prepared to pursue health-related degrees and
    professions in one of the fastest growing sectors of the

    AOHS curricula introduce students to health career
    possibilities, through a series of career exploration courses. Which includes, 
    two separate pathways; Bio-Medical Sciences and Allied Health.

    • Prin. of Bio-Medical Science
    • Human Body Systems

    All courses use project-based learning techniques with an
    emphasis on strengthening literacy, project management,
    leadership, and team building skills while fostering
    creativity and innovation. The curriculum is vetted by industry
    professionals to ensure content is current and relevant.
    NAF has partnered with Project Lead the
    Way (PLTW) 

    College and Career Readiness
    In addition to studying career-focused curricula and
    working on collaborative projects, AOHS students gain
    critical career knowledge through a series of work-based
    learning activities both inside and outside of the classroom
    including job shadowing events, mock interviews, résumé
    writing workshops, and the culminating experience—a paid
    internship. Local business partners work with educators to
    provide these opportunities to round out students’ education.
    By serving on advisory boards and as mentors, business
    partners make an important real world connection for
    students, helping them understand the connection between
    their education and future success.
    NAFTrack Certification, NAF’s student certification
    assessment system, validates successful course completion,
    projects, and internships. By receiving a passing score
    on end-of-course exams and satisfactory scores on
    culminating project and internship assessments, students
    earn NAFTrack Certification - signifying to post-secondary
    institutions and employers that are both college and
    career ready. With this credential, graduates can benefit
    from NAFTrack Certified Hiring, a new initiative with some
    of America’s top companies that gives special consideration
    to these graduates for job opportunities and other career
    support. Select AP, IB, Cisco, and dual enrollment courses or
    third party curricula qualify for NAFTrack Certification.
    Graduates of NAF academies complete college faster, earn
    more, and have stronger ties to their communities than their
    peers. NAF’s 97% senior graduation rate is a testament to
    this effort.
