  • What is the Health Science PTECH Academy?

    Bastrop ISD's Health Science P-TECH Academy is hosted at Bastrop High School and is built through partnerships between BISD, Austin Community College, and local business partners - including our feature partner: Ascension Seton. Throughout their time in the Health Science Academy (HSA), students will be supported through mentoring, course and career guidance, and academic tutoring as necessary. Students will be placed into cohorts of up to 50 students, which will allow for quality community and relationship building with their peers. This program is open to all students and is designed to support the success of every student who participates.

    HSA students will have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, a nationally recognized Pharmacy Technician certification, and a Level 1 Certificate at ACC.  In the HSA, students will take classes on the following topics - Medical Terminology, Pharmacy Practice, and Drug Therapy and Treatment.  Students and families can learn more about the courses and content provided by ACC by visiting: https://bit.ly/HSAACC 

    BISD’s healthcare partners will provide work-place learning experiences on BHS campus and in their healthcare settings. HSA students will interact with our partners each year, and upon successful completion of the program, these employers will be eager to interview and hopefully hire HSA graduates. 

    Students who wish to continue their education after graduating from the HSA may do so at ACC or another institution and will be multiple semesters ahead of non Academy peers.
