Paris Announces Academy of Health Science (AOHS)

Paris High School is excited to welcome its first class of students into the Paris Academy of Health Science (AOHS) in the fall of 2012.   This academy has been created through the National Academy Foundation (NAF).  Paris will be one of eight high schools in the state of Kentucky with an academy, and the only health science academy. 

The mission of the NAF is to sustain a national network of career academies to support the development of America’s youth toward personal and professional success in high school, in higher education, and throughout their careers.  The mission of the Paris AOHS is to provide students an understanding of health science in order to make informed career decisions.  Paris AOHS students will develop the academic knowledge and career skills needed to achieve personal and professional success.  Paris is pleased to partner with Maysville Community College and multiple health professionals in our community in order to make this academy possible.  For more information, please click "Academy of Health Science" on the orange lefthand menu on the Paris High School home page.
