The Sports Science Academy is a comprehensive magnet program geared toward students that have a passion for sports and are interested in pursuing a sports related career. On their journey in this program, students participate in thought-provoking class discussions, examine current events in the world of sports, participate in related field trips, hear from guest speakers in the world of sports, and work on service projects; all in an effort to prepare our students for post high school in the 21st century.
