The San Marcos High School Health Careers Academy is a unique partnership between Santa Barbara City College, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and the Regional Occupations Program. Collaboration between school and community health resources provides an effective educational program, which promotes teamwork, problem-solving, and work site experiences. This state of the art program will be a win for our students and their future and a win for our health community who needs well-trained employees.
Our goal is to provide a wide variety of health career experiences so that, upon graduation, students will be prepared for skilled entry-level jobs and/or entrance into colleges, universities or technical schools.
This is a three-year program that provides students with excellent opportunities to learn about the health care industry through hands-on experience.
