Pathway Exemplars

Math & Science and Technology & Engineering Pathway

Many of our students will exceed the minimum requirements of the HHS Governor's STEM Academy. Below are the additional courses we expect students to take in order to maximize their potential. Students Completing the requirments and these additional courses will be well prepared and highly competitive college candidates.

Governor's STEM Academy Exemplars:

  1. Complete the Governor’s Early College Scholars Agreement by successfully acquiring 15 transferrable college credits - at least 9 in math and/or science.
  2. Incorporate the following courses into your schedule:           Biotechnology, Dual Enrollment Engineering  (captsontes if taken senior year), AP Statistics, Calculus and as many computer courses as possible.
  3. Complete the most rigorous course of studies in which you can be successful.
Health Care Pathway

Many of our students will exceed the minimum requirements of the HHS Governor's STEM Academy's Health Care Pathway.  Since the individual goals of the student will vary, maintaining academic excellence and obtaining a health care related certification is the exemplar in this pathway.
