The HOP program is a 16 week program, meeting twice per month. This program runs concurrently with our SCIP program.
The HOP program is designed for 9th grade students with the intent of exposure specifically to healthcare careers. Our SCIP program is designed for our 10 graders. Our hope is that you would have joined our pipeline as a rising 9th grader which would allow exposure to each program. If you are joining us as a 10th grader and have an interest in healthcare, we partner with the Center of Excellence which has a healthcare program for rising 11th graders during the summer.
