The Academy for Health and Medical Sciences is a rigorous and selective four-year, full-time small learning community of motivated and talented students working concurrently toward their high school diploma and their Associate Degree in General Science. It is a partnership between Somerset County Vocational and Technical High School and Raritan Valley Community College.

Academy Class of 2015

The goals of the Academy are to implement challenging cross-curricular educational experiences that promote critical thinking skills, foster opportunities for leadership and show the connection among disciplines, and to provide authentic clinical experiences through professional and community partnerships, exposing students to related career opportunities. Graduates of the Academy have gone on to continue their education at many prestigious four-year institutions (see list below).

Students in both Somerset and Hunterdon County are eligible to apply to the Academy during the Spring of their 8th Grade Year and must satisfy selective admissions criteria for acceptance.  They must also meet rigorous academic standards for continued enrollment. Once accepted, Academy students earn transcripted college credit during the course of the regular high school day. During their junior and senior years, students enroll in college courses at Raritan Valley Community College.


 "The Academy is a place that helps nurture a student who is
passionate about what they want to do in their lives.” 
 – Meina K., Class of 2011
