Union County Public Schools

In 2017 Union County Public Schools and Atrium Health embarked on a partnership to implement a healthcare and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) pathway for Monroe Middle School students.

The Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle School offers students a unique education by exposing them to healthcare technology careers that encourage student engagement and prepare each scholar for future careers in these areas.

Atrium Health provides a full-time STEM specialist, who is the liaison between the hospital and the school. The specialist helps develop curriculum, lead planning and training sessions for staff, and developed internships/externships and career-building activities for students.

Through the partnership, Monroe Middle School exposes students to the healthcare jobs of today and tomorrow.
