About the Academy

  • The Health Sciences Academy (in partnership with CaroMont Health and Gaston College) is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need for a solid foundation for success in the health services field.

    Students have the opportunity to take classes in the following areas: nurse aide, pharmacy technician, animal medicine, health and fitness science, medical assisting, and foundations of healthcare.

    The program’s goal is to make it possible for students to explore careers in the healthcare field and participate in unique experiences as they move on to college or the workforce after graduation.

    Students who will be in the ninth grade for the 2022-2023 school year may apply for this program. A lottery process will be used to determine the 150 ninth grade students who will attend (75 from inside the East Gaston attendance area and 75 from outside the East Gaston attendance area).  

    You can learn more about the Health Sciences Academy @ East Gaston High School by reviewing the resources on this webpage. If you have questions or need additional information, please send us an email: schoolchoice@gaston.k12.nc.us.
