Holyoke High School North Campus hosts a comprehensive academic program, featuring four theme-based Academies that focus on a specific series of courses, work-based experiences, (such as job shadowing and internships with local companies), and projects. Each academy also includes regular curriculum courses: English language arts, math, science and social studies.
The four theme-based academies include: Community and Global Studies (CGS), Technology, Engineering, and Design (TED), Performing and Media Arts (PMA) and Medical and Life Sciences (MLS).
Community & Global Studies
The Community & Global Studies Academy provides pathways designed around the study of law and criminal justice, public policy, and ethnic studies leading students to examine the foundations of our society while connecting it with the world. This academy fosters unity and community, which drives local and global policy. All pathways include opportunities to extend the learning in connected programs at area colleges, and through partnerships with area businesses and organizations.
Technology, Engineering & Design
The Technology, Engineering & Design Academy provides opportunities for students to dive into fields of engineering, computer science, and industrial design. These students will use the engineering design process to challenge the present design, or create a new design, for everything they encounter. Partnerships with area colleges and many Pioneer Valley companies will provide extensive opportunities for applying learning in the field and advanced college study.
Performing & Media Arts
Medical & Life Sciences
The Medical & Life Sciences Academy provides students the opportunity to explore and learn within the growing fields of biological sciences, healthcare, nutrition, and sustainable practices. Academic options and work-based learning opportunities abound in these fields with strong connections to programs at area and national colleges. The healthcare sector in particular is a broad, large, growing sector in Western Massachusetts and the country.
