Early College Bridge

On Friday, September 27th, four freshman HSCS students attended the Health Professions Hub Groundbreaking Event at D'Youville College: Andrew Moore, Jayden Jones, Gabrielle Malcolm, and Eric Crum. The Hub is a 59,860 square-foot education, training and community health center that will create a unique and innovative learning environment for students, while offering families in the College’s West Side neighborhood greater access to high quality primary care services.

The HSCS students and their personal stories about their goals and interests were featured in a live exhibit of the D'Youville Early College Bridge Program (ECBP). The students introduced themselves to Mayor Byron Brown, and he was incredibly impressed with the poise that our students displayed during the event. During the keynote speech, President Lori Clemo of D'Youville specifically recognized Health Sciences Charter School as one of the key factors in the progression of the College's health professions initiatives.

The Early College Bridge Program is an amazing opportunity for our students that I am currently organizing with D'Youville as our College STEM Coordinator. Through the ECBP, HSCS students will earn college credits during their high school education with opportunities to earn credentials in the form of certificates and even an associate's degree. This program is beginning this year with our freshman class as our first cohort. More details will be provided about this opportunity in the coming weeks as we continue working together with D'Youville to implement this program at HSCS.

Thank you to Ms. Baxter, our STEM College Coordinator!
