What is the Health Science PTECH Academy?
Bastrop ISD's Health Science P-TECH Academy, based on Bastrop High School's comprehensive campus, is built to provide Bastrop students access to valuable skill development in a growing field through high quality academic instruction and relevant work experience. Health Science Academy students will earn a high school diploma, industry-recognized certifications, and credits towards an Associates of Applied Sciences degree at our partner institution: Austin Community College. The skills developed and certifications earned in this program are designed to prepare students for successful careers in the Health Science industry with a focus in either Phlebotomy or Pharmacy Technician. The entire healthcare industry is currently booming in Bastrop and surrounding areas and promises to keep growing. Bastrop ISD is actively developing relationships with local and regional manufacturing employers to provide work-place learning experiences in their factory / workshop settings. BISD is proud to partner with Ascension Seton as a key provider of these work-place learning opportunities. Once students complete the Health Science PTECH program, they can seek employment with our industry partners, or continue their training at ACC or another institution to prepare for further advancement in the healthcare field. Throughout the Health Science PTECH program, students will be supported through mentoring, course and career guidance, and academic tutoring as necessary. This program is open to all students and is geared towards supporting the success of every student who participates.
