Health Science Certification Opportunities

PSJA ISD is partnered with South Texas College and RGV College to offer their students either a Certificate or an Associate Degree in the health science field. In order for students to take advantage of this opportunity, they must apply to the PSJA Academies in 10th grade and if accepted, will spend their 11th and/or 12th grade years completing their desired academy. Students will continue to attend their home high school and will travel to the Academies' site only for academy coursework. Students from all PSJA ISD High Schools are able to apply. The health science-related opportunities available at PSJA ISD are:
