The Social Services Academy (SSA) creates a community where students have first-hand experiences that broaden their understanding of the skills and knowledge essential to careers serving society in healthcare, education, mental health, and social work. Certifications include Certified Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Phlebotomist, and Emergency Medical Technician. Our teachers support caring students who, in an effort to better society, learn to empathize with the needs of an individual and a diverse global community. We prepare students for college and careers in the growing fields of Health Science, Education, and Human Services.
