Metro Academy of Health

Each Metro Academy is a learning community made up of two linked courses each semester, pairing a general education course (such as English or math) with a discipline-specific course (e.g., health, science, ethnic studies, child development). Metro gives students personalized support for college success through in-class academic support and tutoring. Every Metro addresses real-world issues and brings social justice into the classroom. Although you can continue on into any major after you complete Metro, read about the different themes to find a Metro academy that best matches your interests!

Metro Academy of Health supports students in achieving academic excellence while preparing them to critically analyze and confront social factors that lead to health disparities impacting historically marginalized populations. Our instructors are passionate about health and teach interesting classes that focus on social justice and are relevant to our lives. In Metro Academy, you will build a solid foundation for college success and meaningful work in urban health and human services.
