Metro Academy of Science

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!

The Metro Academy of Science supports students in achieving academic excellence and long-term leadership skills while preparing them to become productive members of science professions capable of critically understanding the impacts of science in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
