Health Academy

The Roosevelt Health Academy is a three-year program for students with an interest in the Health Careers field.  With the help of our business partner, Community Medical Centers, we provide opportunities for students to experience the real world of health care at the only Trauma One Level Hospital in the San Joaquin Valley.  We demand high standards of attendance, performance, and responsibility from our students – and in return we show them the unlimited potential they each possess.

Why Join the Roosevelt Health Academy?

Large urban high schools present a challenge to both students and parents.  You want to meet lots of new friends but you don't want to get lost in the crowd. Research and experience has shown that the Academy model – a school within a school tied to a career technical education (CTE) theme – gives our students the best chance for success in high school and after high school.

Roosevelt Health Academy students that have completed all three years of our program have a combined 99.7% graduation rate over the last eleven years.  They also have regularly achieved attendance rates over 98.7%. All of our seniors who complete the requirements of the program apply, and are accepted, to either a CSU or UC College!

Get hospital experience!  The best place to learn about what goes on in a busy, urban hospital is... IN THE HOSPITAL!  Our Academy believes in getting our students ready for work as soon as possible.  Juniors volunteer at Community Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and Senriors receive specialized clinical training in partnership with Duncan Polytechnical High School at local long-term care facilities.

Academic Plan
Academy students take academic core classes together by grade level.  They bond quickly and form lasting friendships and loyalties that help them throughout high school  We are a family at school and we support one another through good times and bad.  Academy tutorials are available after school for difficult classes or for students not meeting the required 2.3 GPA.  During their junior year, Health Academy students select hopital mentors for continued support.
