The non-academic admissions program at Park Elementary will be designed as an inquiry and project-based exploratory model in health sciences providing students with the opportunity to experience various aspects of the medical field, including but not limited to forensics, medical technology, pharmaceutical, nursing, and clinical studies, which will serve as a catalyst for theme-based opportunities aligned with programs at the high school level.


As part of the Focus Choice Schools network, the program will prepare students to work in diverse healthcare fields and become proficient graduates of the Baton Rouge General Medical System in a discipline outlined in the agreement.  A partnership with the Baton Rouge General Medical System creates a strong foundation and an essential link to the healthcare industry while helping students to develop and apply leadership, social, civic, and healthcare skills in a professional setting. It is also important for the district and school to explore the diverse and changing healthcare system to promote interest at the elementary level and build capacity during the process.


Students have access to the wide multitude of resources that the hospital offers that will provide students with standard-based resources necessary to be successful in the medical field and to become workforce ready.
