Mission Statement

The mission of Sylmar Biotech Health Academy (SBHA) is to prepare students for academic success in high school, post-secondary education and professional careers, encourage students to be responsible and active participants in the community, and enable students to become life-long learners.

Description

Sylmar Biotech Health Academy is located in Sylmar, California and has a student body of about 200 ninth and tenth grade students. We are currently in our second year of education, we will be adding on a new grade level with each new academic school year. SBHA aims to transform the high school experience and prepare students for both college and career, especially through connections to the Youth Policy Institute’s (YPI) Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood (LAPN) program and other education and training programs. Emphasis will be placed on student achievement and positive postsecondary outcomes by challenging students to develop problem-solving and interpersonal skills and linking rigorous college preparatory curriculum with technical coursework through two academies that focus on different industry sectors: health-medical and media-arts. SBHA will work to close the achievement gap by providing clear and high expectations for all students, a personalized and supportive learning environment, family-school-community and state-school-private sector partnerships, integrated technology in the classroom, and linked learning.
